comment How to specify username and password in ftp command?
expect (a tcl/tk extension of sorts) is a program that's ideal for this sort of things - ie. wait for some prompt; give a reponse... wait for an answer; give a new response... expect wait for "ogin:" and send you username, then it wait for "assword:" and send your password.

comment Is it possible to change passwords temporarily?
Do you have to change the password? If you first become root, you can then use su - username and "become" any other user - without being asked for password. I myself used that trick; and wrote a script that went through a list of the user on my system, "became" them, and then ran a little script as each of them.

comment Extracting a string from fdisk command
Oh, my bad... I misunderstood. You could use head -n 1 after the sed - or simply fgrep 'sdb1' or fgrep '/dev/sdb1' before or after the sed... You can also simply change the script and replace /dev/[^ ]* with /dev/sdb1 and keep the rest as before.
