Rooting a local box

We have a local box that needs some rooting to happen to it because nobody
knows the root password.

Anybody have a sane way to go about this
-  I was considering using a live-cd of some sort, mounting the drive (SCSI)
and editing /etc/passwd /etc/shadow

Any thoughts, ideas etc?
