use the install disks (boot from them by holding down the C key on power on) and fire up password reset. If that don't work, use disk utility to erase the HD.

cmd+s || fsck -fy || mount -uw / || launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist || ls /users || dscl . -passwd /Users/{xxx=name} {xxx=new password}
