We have lost the username and password for the GUI of our Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch.  Can you please provide instructions on how to reset this password or if you know of any way to get the current username and password.

Well if you know the enable password on the switch or have configured a username/password you can access the CLI through the console cable and change the password. If not you will need to reset the password.
Here is a link that will walk you through resetting the password.
