Ubuntu password

By dodemba ·
After installing ubuntu 5.10 one of my colleagues forgot the username and password.I'm wondering how one can set a new password to the PC.I have been able to solve the problem in Redhat based distros but I am not finding my way out of this. Could anyone help.

Thanks in advance

This is a Debian based Distro so I would suggest going to their Web Site and asking a question they are really helpful.

or you could try Ubuntu's Support Page

As I always keep records of User Names and Passwords I've never run into this problem. It's far easier to prevent problems from occurring than to attempt to clean them up after the fact.
