hi friend,
If u know root password than u can change by login in to root and change the user password by right click on user icon and change password option. and if u want change root password than when PC boot that time u press hold key (cntl+x)than it ask booting option. That time u type linux single on console. u boot in super user mode than u can easily change password of user or root also.
try it.

In case you have lost your root password, boot your system from the cd or floppy, on the boot prompt write linux rescue..
when u get the prompt change the root password:
New Password:
Confirm Password:

This should solve the issue.
In case you have lost the user password and have the root password. login as root and change the user passsword by issuing the command:
#passwd user

hope this helps..

yes u can break it if it is grub loader then on boot option screen press " e " key of keybord to edit the boot loader setting n go to the second line of boot loader then again press " e " key n give a gap after all words and type " 1 " for single and press Enter key then press " b " key to boot into modified loader. now it will boot the system in single user mode or root without prompting any user or password then u can changer the password by " passwd xxx " command for root. then it will ask u new passwd for that use whome name u have given in the place of xxx and confirm the same passwd. after that u can reboot ur machine by just pressing Ctrl+Aalt+Del keys. same procedure u can follow for LILO boot loader but to edit u have to press Ctrl+C first and then u can edit it by the same procedure. i hope this will work for u. best of luck
