Angry password problem with RH 8

I just installed RH 8 and when I rebooted and went to log in it says password invalid. How can I fix this without reinstalling?

Which accont has an invalid password? If it's your user account, login as root and change it. If it's root.... search the forums because I know this question has been answered.

Good Luck
