Insert install disk #1 and boot 'linux rescue'
fix what you broke, and accept dumbguy pennant #653,478,129  (mine has a MUCH lower number)

My RH9 system now says that the root account has expired.  Maybe it was 
because I used "date" to reset system time.  Maybe it was because I 
changed the root shell from bash to tcsh.  Anyway, now I am in a 
catch-22 situation of not being able to log in as root to fix a problem 
that only root can fix.  Can anyone offer a remedy?  Thanks.
