    It's been a while since I've had to do this. But I think this will work.

    just fire up the machine, then at the Grub bootloader screen, select the option to edit the boot line and put a 1 at the end of it. This will load the OS to run level 1 and drop you to a root shell without requesting any login credentials. At this point you can simply use passwd to change the root user's password.
