Can you boot into 'single user mode' like you can FreeBSD? By default FreeBSD doesn't ask for a username/password if you boot up single user mode, so you can just change the root password.
If not.. get some bootable cd like Knoppix, mount whatever partition has ... the shadowed password file on... can't remember what you linux folk call it! and make the root password entry blank or something:
I think that outta work and you'll be able to login with just an enter, or it won't ask you for a password at all!
Or... copy the bootable cd's password file over... or copy it's root entry atleast (should be a blank password?), so you have a root account, then change passwords..
