    You could always boot from a live cd, mount the file system read/write (knoppix allows this) and then remove the x in /etc/passwd as described earlier. I've had to do that before when there was a grub password set.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Yeah, a live CD or a rescue disk is the only way I see. That's a really good reason to discourage people from using the Windows bootloader for booting Linux: it acts too much like Windows!

    Actually, for the live CD option, you'd download Knoppix, burn the CD, then boot from it...you don't need your installation CDs.

    Or, if you don't have a CD burner, www.linuxcd.org is a good source of inexpensive CDs of all types, including a wide selection of live CDs. They ship quick, too.

    Edit: Or you can make a bootable Grub floppy. Read nerderello's Grub tutorial for details. ...while your'e waiting for your live CD to arrive.
