If you boot into single user mode on SCO you should then be able to
login as root at the console, change the passwd from there.
To boot into single user mode use 'init 1'

I am trying to recover or reset the root password from a SCO Unix setup. I

Slackware but was unable to mount the partition. I think the filesystem type
is vxfs. Any advice?
