I have seen this go by a few times, and have seen different replies as to how to rest one's password (or recover a lost one), and while this method wont recover a password, it will allow you to reset your password easily from the grub list. One thing it did not cover is resetting your /root password, but if you have your old password, you can use this method to change the root password, if you feel the need. Just substitute
Code:
passwd user
for
Code:
passwd root
. Here is the link to the tutorial: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword[url][/url]
