Insert the OS X CD. Restart your Mac while pressing the "C" key (this will boot from the CD and launch the OS X installer).

On the first screen, choose: Installer --> Reset Password. When prompted, choose the HDD that contains Mac OS X. At the initial pop-up menu, choose the name of your account. Now you can create a new password.

Hope this helps.
