Hello. I got a cube with an installed NS 3.2. There is a
('ordinary')user-account so I'm able to login. But
I don't have the passwd for the root account.
I've tried to reset the root-pwd with the
'command+tilde then bsd -s...'-trick - but it won't work.

next>bsd -s

When I hit the enter-key nothing happens - the
system seems to hang.

Has there anyone an idea what went wrong?!?

edit:

Mysterious! After some tries to got the password by 'bruteforce'
today the cube not hangs after bsd -s... but I don't
know why. black magic.
