Ok so, I've read all the replies so far and I'm a bit perplexed.
Sami, before you drive 3 hours to and 3 hours fro, kindly log in as sody
over SSH, then try "login" to connect *locally* as the root user.
If that works, you'll at least have recovered root access and will be
able to install sudo, which should help you a great deal.
