Boot to your system restore disc.
Choose utilities from the menu.
Choose reset password.
Select the os installation that has your user account on it.
Select your user.
Reset the password.

This isn't verbatim, I don't have it in front of me but should be close enough to get you where you need to be.

Good Luck
QUOTE Thanks
