unix superuser ROOT password has nothing to do with oracle startup.
Infact dbstart/dbshut scripts doesnt have the passcodes hardcoded.
you need to login ( to the OS) as the right user ( the user should belong to the dba group).
login as oracle into the linux box and issue dbstart.
did you reset the passwordfile using orapwd utility?
if you are using advance security options (special entries in sqlnet.ora will NOT allow dbstart/dbshut scripts to do the job. rename sqlnet.ora to something, start/shut and rename back the sqlnet.ora).
