I'd like to login using the NextStation UI, but don't have the UID or password. I don't know Unix or how to use NetInfoManager to delete the password for user "me" and then log into the "me" account without a password and then set my own password -- as the user did in this post: http://www.nextcomputers.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=14003

I've read these posts, and was able to reset the password, but don't know what to do next.

- http://www.levenez.com/NeXTSTEP/faq.html

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Paul

Thanks. This works, but once the password is reset, I don't know how to do anything else in Unix. At the user interface prompt, I don't know what username to enter --> I also need to reset or create a username, which I don't know how to do. Any suggestions?

In this case the login name is "root" and the new password you chose when you reset it.
