Here are current, easy instructions to access your Ubuntu system if you forgot the password:

Ubuntu doesn't fit on a floppy disk (this is 2014!) but rather is DVD-ish in size. If you do not have the capability to download/burn an Ubuntu DVD, you can order an Ubuntu DVD for $5.95 from any number of reputable online retailers.
