If you are familiar with Unix/Linux you are probly familiar with the passwd file. If you can boot into single user mode shift+s then you can cd into the etc folder where the passwd file is: cd /private/etc When you get there vi passwd from here find the * after the user name with this it deletes your password to a blank password. So if you know the username you will be able to boot up type in the username and there will be no password. This may or may not work in your situation. It worked for me one time but I feel I'm fairly fluent in the command-line interface. If you do this use care. Command-line can be tricky and confusing.

Good Luck
