ALERT!!! ALERT!!! I messed up the UNIX!!!


I have no root access anymore. No remote access! By user access i get a programm started and when i close it, i got logged off!

So I guess I messed up the passwd file!

is there a chance of booting a unix system (SCO-UNIX UnixWare 7.1.1) in a kind of linux single mode? I need to edit the passwd file!!!

Please, I need some help!

Marcus - -> an almost dead man!

I just started the RH7.0 rescue cd.
It found the scsi device.
But somehow I cannot use fdisk to view the partitiontable. When I use cat /proc/partitions then it says that there are a sda and sda4. But I cannot mount them. It says no valid device found.
