This is a really embarassing question. I have Red Hat 9.0 and have these two users:

1) root
2) untz

I forgot my password for user "untz" (this is the main account I use). Is there a way to login as "root" and manually change / look at user "untz"'s password?

Thanks again... laugh.gif

Yes ... as the root user type this in a terminal window:

passwd untz
