lost password - solutions?
I just got an old laptop (mine from about 4 years ago). I have since forgotten the password. It was running an old version of Kubuntu.
How would you suggest I get it up to running and access that data? FYI - I am a real newb, and don't have any tools.
I was thinking perhaps I could put some sort of partitioning tool in(bootable cd?), shrink the old partition, load linux on the new partition and set it as bootable.Then extract the old files and wipe the old partition,
Is that possible? If so, what tools would you suggest?
