GUI Password Recovery

Is there any GUI password recovery or rescue bootable CD or ISO image available?

Welcome to LQ. Your question isn't entirely clear - passwords can't really be "recovered", but they can be changed. If you have forgotten your root password, you can use the "single user" boot option to reset it.
