I need to change the root password on the switch.

I can't figure out how to assign/change the root password on the PC5448.  The switch is new but when i connected to it via the console port, the wizard didn't come up like it was supposed to.  I basically just wanted to assign the IP and change the root password so I could continue to configure the ports through the HTTP page.  

The IP is assigned so i just need to know the command to change the password.

console(config) # username root password letmein level 15

But I could be whistling dixie for all I know, lol.

Maybe reading the manual and user guide would help though:

The knowledge base covers commands to change passwords for other switches and routers.  What are the commands used to change the admin/root password for a Dell PowerConnect switch?
