Password recovery on Redhat

Works with RHEL4
Reboot the server (CTL+ALT+DEL if not disabled: bad!!)
On the grub menu press 'e'
Select the line kernel vmlinuz-2-4.xxxx ro root-LABEL=/ and press 'e'
add a space and the word 'single' (without quotes) then press 'b' to boot
At prompt type passwd root
Then enter the new password
Reboot
