How to reset root password?

being asked how to reset root password. I told:
reboot to single user mode, and passwd root

I was told: wrong, I need to mount the partition first.

fact:
1) if someone left the company, you still have root access, just use:
passwd root, that will do it.

2) if you forget or being changed, and you have the machine,
boot into single user mode, no need to mount anything, just passwd root
with grub, you need to append single to boot into single user mode

PCLinux OS - A Cover Story

Well PCLOS has finally made the cover of Linux Format ! The January issue # 101 is out and the review is great, i am not surprised as since my last posting this Distro has gained even more ground and is in a final release with version PCLOS 2007.

I recently just re-installed the final release a few weeks ago so i figured it would be a good time to make an update to this blog. PCLOS continues to prove it is a solid OS and well put together, i yet again tried a few more distros like Ubuntu 7.10 and KUbuntu 7.10 with KDE4 and well i was just disapointed things dont work as well as PCLOS.
