Easiest way without a CD is to install the root drive into another
Sun box, mount it and edit the shadow file. :-)

There's other techniques if the NVRAM has a password and the boot
device is set to something you don't have (like those $5 SPARCclassics
I got from the university the year before last - had to set up a
network boot to get them up and running to use the eeprom command to
clear the password).
