to fix my admin password. I found that holding the reset button for
10 sec only resets the password if there's no HDD attached. So, to
I removed the HDD and rebooted
Held in the reset button for 10 secs to reset admin password
Logged on as root by telnet
Plugged in the HDD
Re-ran the /sbin/unsling script to copy everything over to the HDD
Rebooted - everything now OK, apparently.
