Use the recovery mode in grub. For this press any key in grub screen, and then chose the recovery mode from the list.

If you are a sudoer, you can run

# sudo bash

which will give you a bash session as root. Next use

# passwd

to set the root password.

Or just run sudo /sbin/passwd root -- no need to start a bash session.
