Subject: [linux-delhi] root password

Dear Sir,

I am working in Deepalaya a largest operational NGO in Delhi. We have
established linux based server in our organisation. We are facing one
since morning. Somebody has changed our root password. Could you please tell
us without login to root, how could we change the root password.

We would be very grateful to you if you solve our problem.

Thanks and regards,
