I'm running solaris 2.6, the problem is that I changed the login shell for root to a shell that doesn't exist! now i cant log in as root to change it back :(
Other than booting from the cd rom, are there any other ways that i can get around this?
root is looking for a /sbin/tcsh shell and i cant copy the shell into that directory as its owned by root!

Any help would be greatly appreciated
