The password for the Administrator account when you use the Recovery
Console is the same password you use for the Administrator account when
you use the GUI desktop to login. If you never specified a password for
the Administrator account then it is blank, so leave the password blank.

This was answered in another newsgroup.

If you must post identical messages in more than one newsgroup please
crosspost, i.e. please place all of the newsgroups in the Newsgroup field of
one message, separated by commas. That way when someone reads the message
in one newsgroup it will be marked as read in all of them. In addition, an
answer posted in one newsgroup will generally show up in all of them.

This is usually not necessary since most of those who answer posts read
more than one newsgroup.
