Evening folks,

Today I was given a Sun Enterprise Ultra 2 but the machine's been out of use
for so long nobody can remember anything about it, which is handy. Googling
tells me I need a Solaris install CD to change the root password....bummer
since I don't have one.

I'm a VAX/Alpha guy, if I want to break a system it's relatively easy but I
know nothing about Suns......

It's running SunOS 5.7 if that's any help....
