    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.

    Example:
    $ cd /etc
    $ more kcpassword
    kcpassword: Permission denied
    $ sudo more kcpassword
    Password:
    (Now it shows you the contents)

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
