When GRUB loads up, select the Red Hat Linux entry on the GRUB menu and then press “e” to edit the boot configuration.

Locate a line like this:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-x.x.xx-x.xxx root=LABEL=/hdc

– type the number ‘1’ at the end.

Doing so boots the computer into run level 1- single user mode you will automatically be logged in as root.

Type ‘passwd’ at the prompt, now you can enter a new password here.
