    Sure, your root password is 'w1zard'.

    If that doesn't work, read the security FAQ at
    http://www-viz.tamu.edu/~sgi-faq and look in the Plain-Text section
    (the other ones are broken.)

    Boot from CD from overlays set then go to admin and run "shroot".
    You can use passwd command in order to change root password.
