fionaadc would probably be hostar's diags root password. When I installed SSH in various diags images, I set the diags root pw to the mario DES hash. You can look in the main /etc/shadow, and copy the root hash into the diags /etc/shadow, to change the password hash to mario (like I did).

I have mentioned in various posts that any images posted for OTHER users should have a mario DES password hash. Locking an image to a specific serial number will just cause confusion. I do not post most of the images. I just add the provided URLs to the forensic images pastebin, so I can only make recommendations, not enforce them.

Glad you got it working. I added you to "the list".
