If you boot from an install CD (say an Ubuntu install CD) and select "rescue" mode .. you will end up in a terminal / command prompt session and you won't need the password to get there. At this point, change the password to something you know with;

Quote
passwd <username>

Or if you need to check what your username is, do;

Quote
cat /etc/passwd
