You should be able to hit a key at the grub boot screen, select the boot 
entry from the list, hit 'e' to edit, select the kernel line, hit 'e' to 
edit, add the word 'single' to the end of the line, then hit 'b' to boot 
into single user mode where you can run
passwd root
and set a new password.

You could also boot the install CD with 'linux rescue' at the boot 
prompt, let it detect and mount your installed system, use the chroot 
command that it suggests, and then change the password.
