Passwd for user 'root' has expired - use passwd(1) to update it
I changed the passwd on within a month, why should it expire?
And boot from CDROM and modify /etc/shadow is the only option?

ask me to check the passwd aging, which is indeed the problem.
But I found this out after gaining the root access. I was able to
ftp as root to the machine and change /etc/shadow.
said that I can still login from console as root. I did not verify this.
