Have you tried this? Taken from Mac Help, which I actually always find to be very helpful and a good first place to check for help:
Changing your administrator password
To change the administrator password, you must know the current administrator password. If you're logged in as the administrator, open Account preferences and click Change to set a new password.
If you don't remember the password and automatic login is turned off, you can reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X User Install 1 CD.
IMPORTANT: Because a user with the CD can gain unrestricted access to your computer, you should keep the CD in a safe place.
To reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X CD:
Insert the Mac OS X Install Disc 1 CD and restart the computer.
When you hear the startup tone, hold down the C key until you see the spinning gear.
When the Installer appears, choose Installer > Reset Password.
Follow the onscreen instructions to change the password.
Quit the Installer and restart your computer while holding down the mouse button to eject the CD.
Be sure to change your login password in Keychain Access to match your new password.
