Description of problem:
The documentation does not state what the resulting root password
will be for an RHR2-installed system. I want to log in to the system
to find my test log files, but I do not know the root password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a kickstart install with the RHR2 configuration files
2. When test is complete, attempt to login to retrieve log files
3. Determine you don't know the password
This is likely a documentation issue. What is the root password?
Should be "hwcert"; we need to document that, and may consider making
it configurable later.
Thanks for the bug report; I've fixed this in v1.12 of the documentation in CVS.
verified in current documentation on live site.
