I lost my root password so I followed these instructions. With the bash-4.2# prompt I could successfully change both my root and user passwords and even access my files at /home. Everthing seemed to be fine until I rebooted and tryied to log into KDE as It refuses to recognize my just set password.

I am a big fat newbie so what am I doing wrong?

What did you do exactly (after booting into bash-4.2# prompt)? Do you try to log into KDE with root user? If yes, try logging in with another user.

Yeah, try creating a new user.
