[K12OSN] Wish my Centos5 server was a Mac

Howdy list

Wishing a perfectly good Centos5 server was a Mac server applies only to 
the ease of re-setting the root/admin password with the boot disk. The 
mounting /etc/shadow and blanking out the password content (between :: 
::) does not seem to work for the machine I have. Tried Knoppix and 
PCLinux Live CDs to no avail...

Does anybody have a solution to change root password via a passwd 
reinstall or reactivation or some such measure?
