I just need to:
boot cdrom -s
mount /dev/dsk/<root partition> /a
I like to thank you Otto and Eric for their really prompt response!

My co-worker editted his password file on a Solaris 2.5.1 to change root's
shell from sh to csh. Unfortunately, the editting change was from
/usr/sbin/sh to /usr/sbin/csh. On his system, sh exist on /usr/sbin, but
csh did not. So now, he is unable to log-in as root nor reboot as
single-user ( No shell error ). The OS did not offer a default shell!
What is the procedure to reboot from cdrom in order to correct the
/etc/passwd file. Or, is there a simpler way to gain root access??
