    Root Password/File Access Question!?! Help!
    How do I access all of my files after resetting root password in SUM?? I can login to my imac now as an administrator, but the folders I want are denied, it says I don't have privileges to those files??

    Try using sudo before each command. It's safer. If you need to ask the question (about root) you probably shouldn't be logging in as root.

    $ cd /etc
    $ more kcpassword
    kcpassword: Permission denied
    $ sudo more kcpassword
    (Now it shows you the contents)
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
