I followed the instructions as mentioned in the link provided by you, I'm still unable to change the password. I did get to the screen where it asks for new UNIX password, however I get an error as below
Just use a livecd, login as root and do a quick "passwd" to change the root password since live cd's generally don't come with a root password. If they do they make them fairly obvious like "toor" (root backwards) or something along those lines.
