Set Root Password

Please pick a good root password, one that is not easy to guess.
You will NEED to remember this password.
If you need to keep this password written down, do it in a secure place, such as a card in your wallet. Do not put this password where others might see it.

Installation Help

Use the root account only for administration. Once the installation has been completed, create a non-root account for your general use and su - to gain root access when you need to fix something quickly. These basic rules minimize the chances of a typo or incorrect command doing damage to your system.
