    } Same with Digital/Tru64 Unix. It runs trusted all the way. And if you
    } lose the root password you are pretty much screwed... :)
    A friend of mine thought up a unique way to get around (maybe) losing the
    root password.

    Remove the HD from the fscked machine and mount it on another machine.
    Then change the shadow file's password for root to * (or whatever "no
    password" is). Then return the HD to the other machine.

    Voila! Root access :).
