If it was that easy, there would be no point in having a password…
You need to get a Linux LiveCD (I recommend grml: http://grml.org/),
either create a CD or write it to a USB stick, boot from it, mount your
system as a chroot, and reset the password. If there is nothing
important on the system it may be easier to reinstall.
