Dear Ubuntu Women

Silly me I forgot my login password and I am "locked out" of Ubuntu. I am
used to windows where I was able negotiate that stuff. I have a dual boot XP
and Ubuntu lucid lynx (10.04).  I never use XP the older a Microsoft OS is
the worse the company makes it.....  I write this from my Windows 7 laptop.

Thanks

Karin
