There is no root password; it's locked. Instead, you use sudo if you need root privilege.

Thanks. Its just that I cannot change pwords on my mysql server using the mysqladmin file. I get the following error:

'Access denied; you need the SUPER prilege for this operation'. I am logged into my account so it should work..

binbash

try
'sudo passwd'
this should create a new root password with which you can do 'su'
