The Ubuntu Recovery option should give you root access.  Changing 
init=/bin/bash (I said /bin/sh in my original message, but in Ubuntu, 
you probably want to use bash) completely bypasses any kind of login.

Please reply to list.  Aside from being good netiquette, that will also 
allow others to review the conversation.  I'm prone to careless errors.
