I am a newbie learning to get to grips with FreeBSD and I have dropped
myself in it!

I have not set the path to my shell correctly for the root (using vipw) and
cannot now get in. I think I need to get in as a single user and run vipw
again, but I am using version 3.1 and I don't get a boot: prompt to type -s
at!

Is there a different method of getting in in single user mode in version
3.x?

Thanks

Colin
