Check Point UTM-1 Device

The company I work for has recently acquired a facility that is using a Check Point UTM-1 Firewall.  This is a manufacturing facility that depends on continuous availability of the network.

My question is regarding the grub menu options of the device.  I can not afford to reset the device to factory defaults.  Instead, I need to get in and reset the login credentials to be able to pull the configuration and see what this device is actually doing.  I have a feeling that there is a way to do this, but I do not have the luxury of taking this device down to simply browse the menu options.  I have been tasked with converting the entire network from the network ip addressing of the old company to the subnets for the new company and do not need this device standing in the way of making this happen successfully.  

Any advice would be greatly appreciated since I am not that familiar with Unix/Linux/Free BSD based boot loaders.

I have since been able to contact the vendor who installed the device and have gained control over it.  It was strictly by accident that we found the vendor, the salesman that sold the old company the device happened to mention it while talking with my IT Manager about some additional equipment we are considering.
