Default /etc/ttys problem

hi if i change:

console "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt100 on secure


console "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt100 on insecure

to add root password in single user mode i get an error message:

init: _getttyent: /etc/ttys, 8: unknown option 'insecure'

and cant login on the console as root, if i dont add this then selecting single user mode on boot just gets you in to root without a password. not a good idea on a computer you want to secure.
