Boot from your installation media, but don't install. Use ALT-F2 to
select the other virtual console giving you a root terminal. Use that
mount your new system and to set a new password there.
Example commands below. Note "example" as you will need to change
your commands accordingly.
mount /dev/hda1 /new
chroot /new /bin/bash
