I tried: init=/bin/bash and linux init=/bin/bash at the graphical boot menu
when it booted up I tried to configure networking and got: Password needed. Administrator (root) privilege is required. Please enter the root password to continue. Command: /sbin/yast2 lan
When I tried:
boot: Linux init=/bin/bash
I got: VFS: Cannot open root device "<NULL> or unknown-block(8,9)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,9)
Is there a way to reset the root password thru the boot: option? Thanks for your help

You need to mount the hard drive's partition that includes /etc and then edit the shadow file and reset the password
