Kubuntu is a linux distribution - an OS based off of the Linux kernel.<br><br>
Looks like you've locked yourself out of your system...reinstalls aren't _always_ a bad thing, now are they? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

that's a MS solution. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />

boot with a livecd/dvd and mount your root partition, then chroot, and (you are root) #passwd<br />
<br />
set your new password... reboot.<br />
