    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.
