[rescue] Lost Password

I'm expecting a 4/110 this weekend running SunOS 4.0.3
without any passwords. It is not very sportsmanlike to
mount the disk on another Sun or boot from CD/tape/net
since there is a way to access the filesystem and change
/etc/passwd from the monitor/rom. I remember that I did
the trick in 1993 on a 3/160 and that the suns-at-home
mailing list told me how to do it. Could anyone please
check the archives and tell me how the procedure went?

Best wishes from Kiel,
