wepyShafto: it's an easy concept.. when you reboot with the gentoo CD, you are root, from there, you can be root in your already installed system just by chrooting into it, therefore, you can set a root password, or add a user, whatever you want
quitttbut in the guidebook
it shows how to install using GLI
wepyquittt: which guidebook?
cd_romShafto: i think what wepy means is use livecd, mount your gentoo partition then "chroot <your-gentoo-location>" and run passwd

wepyShafto: it's like in the handbook, 1) mount drive: mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/gentoo 2) chroot to it: chroot /mnt/gentoo 3) run passwd: passwd
defaceandycr1 - follow the guide i linked you to
darkphaderShafto: or just mount the / partition and delete the encrypted password field from /etc/shadow

cd_rom[17:29] <wepy> Shafto: it's an easy concept.. when you reboot with the gentoo CD, you are root, from there, you can be root in your already installed system just by chrooting into it, therefore, you can set a root password, or add a user, whatever you want
stray_dotdotdot, crt monitors just blank out (disable horiz osc) or give an "out of range" image..
