I wrote up a quick how-to about resetting your root password.  We can discuss it if you like: methods, reasons, even "Damn, I didn't know it was so trivially simple!"

Ya, it is.

No doubt.  There are already a zillion articles all over the web on how to accomplish this task.  I don't know why I got pestered about writing it.  Anyway, it's very easy to do and the method I write about is only one.  However, it's a very simple method.

Lock up that physical access, y'all!
