Boot from your installation bootdsk and rootdsk. With this disks you can login as root (without password). Then mount your harddisk. Go into the
/etc directory and edit the file passwd.
In this file you have to find the line

root:xxxxxxxxxxxxxx:0:0:root: ...

Change this into

root::0:0:root: .....

After this reboot your computer without using the 2 disks. You should now be able to login with root without any password.
