Lost password


I'm Redhat 9 on of my machines and I don't know how it happened, but when I changed my password last I entered it wrong 2 times in a row without knowing it. Now I can't get into that box. I used to know how to get in with LILO but this system has GRUB installed. What do I do to recover the password of this box? I'd hate to perbuild it...
