Forgot MYSQL root pass

[jon@localhost jon]$ su
[root@localhost jon]# mysqladmin password testing123
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'

Is there a way to reset your MYSQL root pass?

UGH... I think root should have access to mysql with/without a pass... root is root.. root should have access to all without bs...

Well... I hope someone can help ;-(

Linux newbie in need...
