     I need to get root access to my t1000 server but it seems that no one has the password.  We have a DBA that has an Oracle account that can shut our Oracle  DB down, but he can't create mounts or other system tasks.  

     How can I recover (or reset) the password for my server?  I have physical access to the box.
