Hi Gurus,
I installed the system and was requested to input password which i did. After completion of installation i was requested to create a user and password. My problem is whenever i want to do administrative function like creating users and groups; i can't use root (super user) since i don't have a password. i still have the password i gave for super user. Does it mean there is a special password for root? How do i access it and change it.

Thanks,
Njoroge

Unless I've misunderstood you, the first password you entered for "super user" is the root password. Root is the account name, super user is a description.

During the installation, you was asked for the root (superuser) password.

You may change the password using passwd command.
