The md does not have a password for root.

If you need a root shell type sudo -s


If you need to login to an MD before it has been added fully by the system... as in the case where you are trying to add new display drivers and therefore have not run the AVwizrad and finished the Setup wizard on the MD in question you can do the following;

chroot /usr/pluto/diskless/NN passwd
(**where NN is the device number of the MD or 'Moon' in question**)

After that you can use the following line to login to the MD;

ssh root@moonNN
(**again NN is the moon number for the MD in question**)

Hope that helps

This seems to be the thread and steps I need to be looking at/following to get my silly MD working. I will do my best with this before I start asking questions, so I just wanted to thank you all for this info first. I hope I dont come crawling back with my tail between my legs too fast. This compiling business is confusing the heck out of me.

Thanks in adv.

i got the thing up and running, but I used a script someone on here made with the help of some other threads. It's not running 100% to my satisfaction but hey, its running. I will try to put a step my step layman's guide to get the stupid VIA CX700 stuff to work.
I appreciate the help ya'll have been giving. It took me a week of reading and trial and error to get it to work. Very frustrating for someone who is a n00b with linux. again i thank all of you, and I hope to contribute back to the community some how.
