Hmmm... that's very strange, I wonder why it's doing that?  By default
Ubuntu doesn't have a root password...

Yes, the bit about password reset is at the bottom of the "how to",
once you've got into the root shell.

Syntax is "passwd username" then you're prompted for the replacement password.

Let me just reboot and try it
