At the lilo prompt just as teh system starts to boot, and asks you which
kernel you want to boot to, hit esc and type
This will set you up as root at level 1.
and enter a password for root.
Now you will be able to log on as root.
You can either enter a user now with whatever suse uses to make a user, or
just put the line
at the end of /etc/passwd
and then put
t the end of /etc/shadow
Note you MUST enter it in EXACTLY as shown. In particular that is >> not>
Otherwise you could wipe out your whole password file
And similarly for the /etc/shadow file
You will now have root access and one user, jogia.
Still as root, do
and enter a password for user riches.
You may want to copy various files in ( eg .bashrc and .bash_profile)
/etc/skel into /home/jogia
cp -p /etc/skel/.??* /home/jogia
chown -R jogia /home/jogia
Now reboot. (alt-ctrl-del)
