Then my next approach would be to boot of a live CD, change the root
password on the live CD, and copy the encrypted password from the
liveCD's /etc/shadow to the machine's /etc/shadow and /etc/shadow- .
I've done this a few times, though it might not work if the two
distros use a different salt for the password hash. (Though, honestly,
I've never encountered that barrier.)
