Forgot root password

Hello all,
This is my first post in this forum.

I have installed Fedora 10. I have been using the su command.
It was fine till date.
When I su now, it asks for password. When I typed it, gives error "su: incorrect password".

I think I have lost the root password or have some problem in my system.

Please, help me recovering the password.

Thanks in advance,
