I cant login after installation
I have reinstalled slackware 3 times and I get always the same problem. When I try to login as root after installation and reboot I get this:
darkstar login: root
You have new mail.
Welcome to Linux 2.4.26 (tty1)
darkstar login: (again ask me for login.. and again, and again..)
When I login as root with wrong password it just says "Login incorrect.", so I'm sure that my password for root is ok and slackware recognize my password.
I found solution about this problem, but i dont know how to do it. Well, I found this:
Boot of your CD (rescue-mode ;}) and mount the linux-partition with /etc read-/ writeable and just edit /etc/passwd /etc/shadow to be passwordless for root...
Can someone help me to do this (may be just to write comms and steps that I must do), or just a solution for my problem if this will not work?

Well, I fix it..
If someone have the same problem, can fix it by adding more /root space (4GB is a nice idea for "full" install) and reinstall.
