Found this on cobalt site and it works!!
On the front of the RaQ3 to the right of the LCD screen is a hole. Take a
paperclip and insert this into the hole and it will reset the password for
the RaQ. Go into the Web based Server Admin page, still using admin as the
username, but leave the password field blank, and make a new password. Both
the Admin and Root password will now be the same.
If you have trouble accessing the web based admin screen, you can try doing
a serial console access with a null modem cable.
Thanks to all anyways
