    The system password can't just mysteriously change like that. Did you try not entering any password (I'm sure you did that, silly me).

    Still, I think for now the OS X DVD is your only hope cause even to show the password in Keychain you need the admin/password.

    Has nothing to do with being a beginner, sometime the simple mistakes will get you.
