I know this has been posted here before. I would highly appreciate it
if someone could get me out of this mess.
Ok. Here's what I did:
>logged in as root (as normal, no password needed because there is none)
>tried to make password with passwd.
>made backup of my /etc/passwd file.
>put a # infront of gonzo and snake in /etc/passwd file.
>went ot virtual console and tried to log in as satan (no password)
>It asked me for a password when it shouldn't have.
>Tried to log in as root with no luck.
>tried to log in as another user with no luck
>went back to first console (already logged in as root)
>edited passwd file and deleted to passwd encryption for root.
>went back to other console and tried to log in.
>I should have done this but I logged out as root on first console.
>I tried <CTRL> <ALT> <DEL> and it gave 'I don't know you. Go away'
>put in floppy boot disk (instead of botting off HD)
>loaded up but noone can login.
>Hit reset again, loaded DOS and windows and am now typing this HELP message.
Again, I would highly appreciate it if some kind soul could e-mail me
the way to get out of this mess. What did I do wrong to cause this to happen?
Thanks in advance
