OT: Solaris kernel boot param like init=/bin/bash?

Imagine! Asking a Solaris question on a Debian mailing list. The gall!

(But you guys are the only source of True Computing Knowledge around :-)


In Linux, if my passwd file has gotten corrupt or something, and the system hasn't been locked down, you can get minimal shell functionality at the LILO prompt by entering something like:
    linux root=/dev/hda1 init=/bin/bash

Is there a similar way to get to a shell on a broken Sun Solaris 8 system?
