quite simple,

Insert o/s cd,
boot cdrom -sw
create a directory or find one that is empty and
mount root partition in that directory.
cd into the etc directory.
set TERM and CRT variable
vi etc/shadow or etc/passwd depending on the o/s and remove the root password or re-create it.
reboot.... et voila!!!
