  Very cool.  Do you remember how to crack the password?  Those sorts of
things generally don't pose much of an obstacle for me, especially in
the UNIX world, but this one is tough.  My next step was to connect the
system disk (it's SCSI) to a NetBSD or Linux box and use a raw sector
editor to zero out the field in /etc/passwd.  That will be a hassle,
however, so if you know of a better way, I'd love to hear it.
