I don't understand the previous line. If you booted to single user, why would you need to 'su' to anything? When you boot to single user, you effectively are root. Do I misunderstand something you are trying to do? Of course, when you boot to single user, you need to do a couple of things to really be able to get around and change things. fsck -p Just in case mount -u / remount root to be fully read/write mount -a mount everything else swapon -a make sure it has some paging/swap space. At this point you should be fully functional as root. You may also want to run a shell other than /bin/sh for convenience. /bin/tcsh would get you tcsh or pick your own poison. ////jerry > > I am using Freebsd 5.2.1.
