On SUSE you have Yast where there is a tool where you can change passwords. Otherwise just open a terminal and there you have the passwd tool.

Thanks for your prompt response.    Is there any way I can change admin passwords for multiple Linux at the same time.  We do not have Windows domain env.   We are into Novell.

I don't have any current Netware version, but if you have setup directory services (Netware's NDS?), you should be able to change the passwords through that.
