Actually the way to go is to null it out
restart your machine.
If you have a console ctrl-b, login and then use the rs command.
Power switch only if no user can soft boot the machine.
Interupt at the console at the 10 second prompt
You will now boot single user mode.
You may need to use the fill path of the mount command.
null it out and save it.
Set the root password and remember it this time.
