FreeBSD 9.2 : change root password through single user mode

I built FreeBSD 9.2 within KVM and I can not login as root.
I am not sure if I configured the root password when installing the OS..

Here is how to change root password.

log in as single user mode ( when booting, press 2 )


# fsck –p
# mount –u /
# mount –a

configure the password.

# passwd

reboot the OS.

# reboot

To allow users to become the root, edit /etc/group file.
add users in the wheel group.
# cat /etc/group
