ummm..... any install disk of any OS will get you started. and then from there you install wiping out the OS already installed. you can however boot into single mode and change the passwd of the linux install on there. at the lilo prompt, or if its graphical, press control-x then at lilo type linux single, it should boot to a command prompt, and there you can issue the passwd command followed by root. then you can change the password, reboot and you can gain access to the computer.
