I think if you just delete the password entry in /etc/shadow (or the other file if you aren't using shadow passwords, I can't remember what it is right now) for that user that should take care of it. There is a thread from yesterday/day before I think about resetting root's password that has detailed instructions for how to delete the password entry.

> I am running an out of the box redhat 9. I am required to set up an account for corporate "bdnaadmin' with NO PASSWORD. It seems that the GUI (how embarassing for me) requires a password. I have tried deleting the account, then using "adduser bdnaadmin". RedHat put one in for me...
