RHEL 6 administrator question

I have root access on RHEL 6.

How can I find the file that contains non-administrator users and the passwords

How can I find out what a user's pw is, and modify it if necessary

/etc/passwd , /etc/shadow

You can't find out a user's password, but you can change it without knowing it if you're root.
Use the "passwd" utility.
See "man passwd"!
