Forgotten root password

I'm resurrecting an old RH 7.3 box and I've forgotten the root password. 
:-( In addition, I seem to have tossed the old install discs I burned as 
well. I have a non-root login I remember so I can log into the system. 
But I can't upgrade apache/perl/etc. What are my options?

PS. At some point I'll probably upgrade to Fedora Core or Debian (via 
Knoppix I think). I also understand about vulnerabilities in such an old 
release and the box is 100% not accessible from the outside.
