    I'm assuming that you mean the root password. In that case it's the same way you do in any distro:

    Code:
    passwd

    Wow you're totally ready for a specialized distro like BT.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    I think what thorin is trying to say is that you should probably familiarize yourself with linux in general (install Ubunu to the HD, try booting off the CD, install to a virtual machine, or something along those lines) before trying to use a specialized distro like Back Track. the #Ubuntu IRC channel is very helpful. Here is another place to start: http://www.pixelbeat.org/cmdline.html The command line is your friend.
