You boot loader password? I have been using Linux for a number of years and never used a boot loader password (in either grub or lilo) although that is a possibility. Now if it is a lilo password, I would think reinstalling Lilo MIGHT do the trick, but it MIGHT NOT. If it is NOT the boot loader, but rather the user password that you forgot (and the root password) then it is another issue all together.
www.google.com has info on all of the above. Seek and ye shall find, ask and it is going to take a while!
