Thanks to everyone who replied (way too many to list).

The consensus was that I should be able to boot cdrom -sw, and then mount
the root disk on /a, and edit the shadow file. Unfortunately, I was unable
to get this to work. I went ahead and did a clean install anyways, as this
is what the client decided they wanted afterall.
