Hi! Allthough you already got good answers, I'd like to add the following:

Your /etc/ttys would contain "insecure" in the 5th field so nobody would get into the shell without the root password. Then, fsck and mount -a, followed by "exit" or Ctrl-D would be neccessary to boot the system into multi user mode. To boot your system into SUM, I think /boot/loader.conf must contain the line ,,boot_single="YES"''. If I remember correctly, there as been a way to put a password request into a much earlier stage of booting (boot oder loader), but sadly, I can't remember where to do this or if it's still possible. Maybe these ideas are helpful. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
