If you can't remember a simple password why are you playing with a Linux distro aimed at IT Security professionals?
You could always boot from CD or USB and then copy the original BT passwd and shadow files to your boot device.

I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
