I have a server that is running Firestarter on Debian 5.
I have forgotten the root password, and have not logged into root on
that computer, or updated the system, for about a year, I think.
I do remember a user login, and have successfully "ssh'd" into the
system as that user.
Is there some way that I can access the root account, and replace the
password, without having to overwrite the system via installing a new
system to replace what exists?
Thank you in anticipation.
