Thanks to Karl, Heikki, Michael, James, Dave and Andrew for answering
my "off-topic" plee for help. With the knowledge collected i did the
following:
Ran the BOOT and ROOT floppies, ran mount -t ext2 /dev/hda3 /mnt,
cd /mnt/etc, mv passwd passwd.BAD, mv passwd.old passwd.
Andrew brought up a point to go in as "single user" mode. Never thought
of that..
Thanks all round and to those who may answer after i send this message.
