-====== NeXt Cube ====== 
-From [[http://​www.bangmoney.org/​nextstep/​root_password.html]] 
-Lost Root Password 
-If you've forgotten the root password, you'll need to follow the following procedure to reset it so you can login as root. This is most helpful to people who've just purchased a used NeXT but don't know what the root password is. 
-Reboot the system. 
-Immdeiately after the "​Testing System"​ message is replaced with "​Loading from disk", hold down the right command key and press the tilde (~) on the numeric keypad. You are now at the ROM monitor. 
-Boot the machine into single user mode. Most people boot off the hard disk, and should type the following at the ROM monitor prompt: 
-NeXT> bsd -s 
-Once the system has started and dumps you at a root prompt, you need to make sure NetInfo and other services get started. Do this by typing: 
-# sh /etc/rc & 
-Set the root password using: 
-# passwd root 
-Now, reboot the system and you can use the new password. 
-I use the monitor cable of the NextStation Mono (DB19 connectors on both ends) to connect the Next with the Soundbox. ​ 
-On the Next machine, I have made a "​dongle"​ which passes through all wires (DB19 male/female connectors). The following wires need to be connected with the VGA cable (DB15 connectors): ​ 
-VSync: Next pin 8, connect with VGA pin 14  
-HSync: Next pin 9, connect with VGA pin 13  
-Video: Next pin 10, connect with the RGB VGA pins 1,2,3  
-GND: Next pins 13-19, connect with VGA pins 6,7,8
