    I sense a problem here in moving the master database withina clustered enviornment, which must be performed on a controlled manner. Otherwise you will be risking the availablility of cluster as SQL service is dependant on the master datbase.
    What Hemant referred still applicable and as it is SQL 2005 you can make use of SQLCMD:
    Bring all the resources of the SQL Server Group in the cluster offline (except for Disk drive and IP Address).
    Go to command prompt and start sql server using the following command sqlsrvr.exe -m (single user mode)
    Connect to sqlcmd using ip address of the sql service sqlcmd -S xxx.xx.xx.xx (ip)
