The manual seems to indicate that once the password for the root has been fed into the system during installation then it cannot be changed by any means.

Then it needs rewritten or you didn't read it right.

I would like to change my (root) password. Can this be done? Or do I need to reinstall the whole sheebang?

logged in as root type passwd that's all there is to it.
Thank you.

I guess I should do 'passwd <new_password>', yes?


Enter the passwd command. You will then be prompted for the old password etc.
