Friend of my wife's just got a devorce and the jerk took his password protected admin password with him and left her with the computer and he also took the install cd. I'm a windows user mainly and not that familar with this system but can get to superuser (root) status or at least when I type in whoami it tells me I am root but i am unfamilar with the system -

can I make a new user with admin rights from this terminal?

please respond -- email me at
