Re: Password Recovery



  Did you try Linux 1 at lilo prompt? That worked for me. ;-)

Once upon a time, Shirmay Li <shirmay.Li@mail.twp.ac.nz> found a keyboard. And typed:
>Hi,  We use Debian Gnu/Linux 2.1. The root password is lost(yes we are kicking ourselves). I've tried to boot into the single user mode by typing linux single at the lilo boot: to recover the password. But the method does not work. Could you tell the proper way please?
