How can I recover the password for root in FreeBSD 4.4

I changed yesterday the password for root on my server because I found it too simple. Unfortunately I didn't write it and now I just can't remind it. I still have access to an account belonging to the wheel group. Is there any means to recover or to set a new password for root?
I would appreciate any help on this.
many thanks,
