Hi Lads

I just recovered a really cheap used IBM pSeries machines from a liquidation 
sale. As far as I can tell it is a 7026-B80 system with a single processor 
(speed unknown), 1GB RAM, and around 230GB of disks (2 x 9GB internal, 12 
x 18GB external).

Unfortunately I do not a login for the root user account. Nor do I 
have an AIX 4 media kit. Is there any way to reset the root user password 
without a media kit?

FWIW this is the first POWER machine I've had a fiddle with. The design seems 
pretty solid (though the internal cable routing is pretty poor).
