    Exclamation Mandrake stumped

    yea, this kinda blows...i rebuilt my laptop to mandrake a while back...and says my user has been in need of desperate help. when u get to the login screen, it uses the 'friendly click on a picutre to enter your password' so i cant login as root...any suggestions as to how to change that so i have to type in a username...or any suggestions to un-expire my account....

    FYI pressing CTRL - ALT - F1 should take you to a text loginn where you will be able to sort problems out.
