How to reset MAC OS X admin password?


I have been having trouble with my MAC OS X (version 10.5.8) admin password. I even made my hint the actual password, and it still says that I have an invalid password. Is there some way that I can reset my admin password using the installation disk, without potentially erasing all of my files and information? Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated...THANK YOU!

    Insert the install disk, restart holding down the "c" key. One of the options that pops up is to reset your admin password.
