When my passwd file got screwed up, along with a few others, I just 
re-installed it from the distribution set. Simple enough task assuming 
you haven't made any changes. 

I suggest that, I'm sure someone has a less violent way, but...

If you follow my somewhat blunt methodology, be sure to keep a log of any 
changes you make, just in case you have to do it again.
