recovery after deleting passwd & passwd-
i forgot my user password and tried reseting it but couldn't with error, but while in root i stupidly deleted passwd and passwd- files now i can't boot up.
i used a recovery disk and copied the passwd and passwd- files back on to the /etc directory and i still can't boot into my machine it doesn't reach login screen, just hangs with fedora image.
i'm using fedora 15.
i do realise how stupid it was to mess around in root. i don't know what came over me!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
