    hi,

    I've installed Suse Linux 9.1 and I've lost my login datas, I can't remember then, now I don't know how to login as a root.
    Does anyone know where can I get these infos or how to bypass them?
    thanks!

    And then run passwd root (to set your root password) and passwd number (assuming that's your user name.)

    Thank you, it worked, actually, I have another big question.....
    I have the user guide for suse linux 9.1 but it doesn't explain at all how to connect to the internet: I have adsl at home and I have my CD with the driver of my adsl modem....
    1) I tried to open the files .exe but I don't know how..... I don't know with which program shall I open the file.
    2) I tried with YaST/network devices/DSL ; it starts to initialize something but then it doesn't detect anything (of course, if it doesnt read the drivers!) I'm confused, how shall I install the driver for adsl modem?
    How do I choose with which program shall I open a certain file????
    thanks!
