    When you try to run the installation, are you doing it with RPM, or are you using YUM?

    To change the root password, run:

    # Become root, type:
    $ sudo su
    # Hit enter, then type:
    $ passwd
    # Enter the new password twice, then type
    $ exit
    Code (markup):
    This wont let you log in as root via SSH but you will be able to by way of Virtualmin. I must stress, however, that you shouldnt be using the root user to do anything. You should be using a non-root user for something like Virtualmin, or anything really.
