Thank u for the quick response
i beleive im using a KDE menu.
the posts for password recovery didnt somehow work for me
I feel shifting to single user mode will be a good soln. for this .The post for single user mode were too brief to implement .... could someone pls elaborate how to configure grub bootloader in single user mode.
here is my grub menu
grub main menu
Sabyon Linux X86 (genkernel-x86-2.6.27-sabayon)
Sabyon Linux X86 (genkernel-x86-2.6.27-sabayon) (safe mode)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.27-sabayon ..........
Thanks in adv,
