    b/c that's what you type when frustration sets in

    LiveCD ??? Change Passwords = NOT!
    I understand your frustration. When a screen does not display anything it usually indicates that the program is buggy or broken. I can assure you that the commands I mentioned do if fact work even though it doesn't appear to work.

    I've learned that you can save all your work in a saved state type of environment.. I don't know if it helps but I will describe how to get to it on the 5..0 DVD of knoppix

    The program is called

    "Crerate a persistent disc image"

    to get to it you:

    click on the penguin at the bottom left when the bottom bar is opened wide

    -->CLICK THE PENGUIN/TUX
    --->CLICK FIRST OPTION AT THE TOP LABELED(CONFIGURE\)

    you should see a little house symbol that states "Crerate a persistent disc image"
    --SELECT THAT--

    NOW it will create a section in the partition where it saves your work.

    HAPPY TRAILS!!!
