I loaded FreeBSD on one of my old PCs a few years ago.
 I wanted to start using it again, but I can't
remember what the root password was.  I'm sure I used
the default, but I tried hitting enter and using
"password", "root", "r00t", "sysadmin", "admin" and a
few others to no avail.

Can anyone tell me some others to try?

Alternately, I tried logging into the box in
single-user mode to change it.  However, when I got to
the boot: prompt and typed -s, it proceeded to do a
normal boot.

I'm not exactly sure which verion I have, but the book
was The complete FreeBSD 3rd edition and the CDs are
dated June 2000.

Any tips would be most appreciated,
Pat Wilcox
