Description Daniel W. Ottey 2004-12-17 13:25:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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.
