Password bypassing - (for the clueless)
Replies by PM if you feel appropriate.
A long time ago, a student set up a couple of *nix boxes in our observatory. They were removed some years ago, and were lurking in a store. Now, it transpires that there just might be some astronomical images on them, but no one knows the password. He's long gone...
If they were windoze boxes, I'd just boot them into Ubuntu with a cd, and copy the images off. Windows, obviously, can't handle the disk file structure.
Can anyone offer a clue how to get into the disk? I've got external an adaptor to hang the disk on.
