You can boot into single-user mode and reset the root password. Check my reply to this previous post...

Are you using "root" or "ROOT" as the username? It should be "root".

Otherwise, you can login to single-user mode, create a regular user account, reboot and login as the new user, then "su -" into root account when you need to do something as root. It will just ask for the root password then.
