I recently purchased a co-located server from Cedant and need to
enable the root user. It's running FreeBSD 6.1. Currently there
appears to be no root user enabled on the server. I can't even "su"
to root. I've tried using "pw" to add my user to "wheel" but I
receive a warning informing me that I must be root to even do such a
thing. You can see my quandary. Please advise.
