Some how I managed to change my root password to something
other than what I wanted to and of coure how I don't know what it is. 
But my real problem is that I tried to use the "fixit" on my install boot
floppy and it mounted "/" read-only. Ok, so I'll do something else.
But now it won't boot without sending me to an install menu and
of coure when exit to the shell I can't do anything. How do I
get it to boot normally again. I'll figure out another way to fix
the passwd problem. 

I'm running 2.0R that I down loaded to floppies. (I don't wanta 
reinstall everything I installed this a year ago and I don't have
away to backup everything so I'll lose alot of good stuff, please 
help)

P.S. I like to take this opportunity to thank the guys who
     are working on the FreeBSD team. I've been a software 
     engineer for more years then I'll admit to and it is
     really nice to have the OS (Unix) that I work with 
     every day on my home system. It feels like a real computer
     now.
