Hello,


during boot up there's a prompt which says to hit enter to boot /kernel or
something like that. It times out after 10 seconds (default). Hit any other
key than enter and type "boot-s" to boot in single user mode. You should
then get a shell prompt where you run these commands: 


# fsck -p 
# mount -a -t ufs 
# swapon -a 
# passwd -l 
# exit



Best regards,
