System PII mmx 350.
Hello, I am a migrating user and have just finished installing OpenBSD 3.5
according to the OpenBSD install guide and without any problems.
I have rebooted the system, the dmesg looks good, and now I want to login
as `root' to start configuring my new OpenBSD system;
But when I type root at the login prompt, the only thing that shows up at
the console is a message saying: login incorrect, and it gives me a login
prompt again, I dont even get a password prompt. It refuses the login name
I tried to login from another machine with ssh, but this fails also.
Anyone any idea's, comments or constructive suggestions ??
The first option that comes to my mind is, to [re]edit the passwd file
after a new boot with a floppy, or disk. But I am not sure if this is the
correct way with OpenBSD.
Thnkx again.. From a new OpenBSD user..
[If I am able to login]
