Distribution: Slackware, (Non-Linux: Solaris 7,8,9; OSX; BeOS)
If you have access to the physical machine and a boot disk (probably any disk that can read the file system will be fine -- i.e., a Slackware boot disk may work). Boot with the boot disk, mount the partition that contains the passwd and shadow file, edit those files (empty the password field), then reboot SCO. Log in as root, set a new password.
By the way, in my opinion, you should ditch SCO for something more willing to play with others.
