Hi. I am playing with PClinuxOS and wondered how do i change the root password (guess what it is now?)?

From my very limited knowledge of Linux, I believe the "Root" password is set up during installation and cannot subsequently be changed without reinstalling.

I'm not sure if its the same as my Xandros, but if you sign in as root admin and go to the control centre and change it there, at least I can in mine.
