When moving from the University of Idaho dorms, where I installed FreeBSD 5.2.1, back to my dad's place, my installation got all sorts of crazy, between DHCP, hostname, and other problems that were I guess part of my system's configuration. So recently I've been trying to fix them, and get my system at least backed up so that I can try reinstalling it or putting Windows back on my computer, but today I happened to overwrite my root password (and now I don't know what it is), and to top it off, my kernel is now GENERIC instead of my customized one--which solved the problem where my BSD installation would hang at "Counters tick every 10.000msec" or whatever (basically, I needed to disable ACPI.) So booting without ACPI works, but I can't get into root, and booting as single user hangs on "counters tick...", so I can't change my root password, and I don't quite know how to boot as single user AND without ACPI at the same time. Sorry to be so long-winded, but I'm pretty upset. Thanks for your help.
