I think i got it,

is that it??

"Reboot the machine. During boot, interrupt the process on the console by hitting space when prompted. Type 'boot' and when asked "Interact with ISL?" answer yes. At the ISL prompt enter "hpux -is". The machine will then boot into single user mode right to a command prompt. You can then change the root password and reboot to get the machine back into multi-user mode."

thanks alot
