PASSWORD RECOVERY

I came back from vacation after doing a arch64 install and like the genius I am forgot root password.

boot your install cd, enter the bash shell

mount [your / partition -- for me /dev/sda3] /mnt

chroot /mnt

passwd root

[set new password]

reboot

I was told to reference http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/8832
