|there's no password. |
You can become root with the command "sudo su".
You can use root power for a single program with "sudo <program>".
You can create a password with the "passwd" command.
You can be prompted to create a password when you boot by using the "secure" boot option.
You can keep your current password persistent by backing up /etc/shadow.
I read your reply regarding passwords. It sounds good, but I get a password prompt whenever I enter the "sudo su" command. I am attempting to edit lilo.conf so that I can have a dual boot with Windows and Linux. Whenever I try to edit lilo, I get a read-only file which I can't edit. Whenever I try to use the "sudo su" command to enable editing on this file, I get a password prompt. I don't know of a password. Any suggestions???
