You can always boot to a new CD/DVD and just rebuild the disks with a new OS... OR... You can use the following guide to reset your lost password:

To technodweeb....I went to this site....http://askubuntu.com/questions/24006/how-do-i-reset-a-lost-administrative-password....On booting up I then pressed Left Shift when the
Bios came up & scrolled down to [root]. After pressing enter I then got this...
root@dell4100:~#
I then typed in [mount -rw -o remount /] pressed enter and got this.......

[901.684401] Ext4-fs (sda1): remounted. OPTS: errors=remount -ro............
when I hit enter it then went back to [root@dell4100:~#] again.

I am not able to type in the rest of the commands needed.

what am I doing wrong??

thank poupuli
