comment Updating FreeBSD 8.0 to 8.1 (methods and policy)

comment Is it possible to rename a Unix user account?
Since you're using Ubuntu and can't login as root, I would create another account called, say, admin that you use for just this type of task. A temporary account will work just as well but you might as well keep it since you could be doing similar things in the future.
