Do a 10 second search on google for "Ubuntu +root +password"...then come 
back and ask any other questions.  But if you posted here before doing 
that, I guess you may need a little more direct instructions:

Seriously - this gets asked at *least* once a week on this list, and it's 
getting a little tedious.  Please learn how to search the archives and go 
to and take a look at the support options (FAQ/wiki/forums 

No wanting to be rude....just wanting people to STOP ASKING THIS QUESTION :)
