ok, I mounted my /dev/md1 and tried chpasswd as well as passwd but I get this:

passwd: User not known to the underlying authentication module

Do you mean me to manually enter the password into /etc/passwd ? I guess I would have to enter it md5 encrypted there? Or how exactly do I achieve this?


I answered my own question:

mount -t ext3 /dev/md1 /mnt/
root@h898552:~# cd /mnt/
root@h898552:/# chroot /mnt
h898552:/# passwd
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully

and again I learned something new :-) I REALLY DID IT!!!
