Changing Password for Root Power

Postby theevilone6620 » Tue Aug 18, 2009 6:32 pm

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to change the password needed to get root powers in Mint. I installed the OS on my girls system and put the password I generally use on my laptop in during the installation. I need to change it in order to make her life easier.
