It's just you. (:

If you forget the root password you have other problems anyway.  What
alternative do you have, from the NT end, besides treating root files
as owned by "some unknown user" which is what 'nobody' will represent

None of this will affect your access from Unix, which is how you would
go about fixing such a situation anyway.
