[CCTECH] Entering single-user mode on Pro/Venix?

Still playing with my Professional 3xx boxes. Managed to clean one
memory board of 8264 chips; will populate with 50256s when I locate
my bag of 16 pin sockets. On the software side, I managed to get
my RD51 with Pro/Venix 1.0 up and running on a 640KB Pro350. It was
a gift some years ago; the donor even brought it by my house - no
pickup! He didn't recall the root password, so I stuck it in the back
of the basement and only recently dug it out.

So... even though I have the manuals, it's not obvious how to get
a Pro to enter single-user mode. Any suggestions? Barring that,
I suppose I could wipe and re-install, but I'd like to poke around
to see what's on the disk first.
