I have just installed the X11 graphical windows program, at the same time
as upgrading from debian 1.2 -> 1.3. It all worked fine at the time, and
I selected to have X11 coming up automatically on start-up. However, I
have just rebooted my machine, and after the usual linux start-up
messages, it came up with the login window in X11. I entered 'root' as
user name, and my password (I need to make linux bootable from
hard-drive), but kept getting login incorrect. (I installed shadow
passwords when upgrading to 1.3, if this has any effect). Is there a way
I can get linux to boot-up without starting X11 (preferably without
resorting to the rescue disk), and/or change my password? Is the problem
that you can't login to X11 as root?
