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

THere is no way to go around this unfortunately... you MUST boot on CDROM and moun the dfisk and change shell for root.
