getting into my system

Specs: Lenux Fedora 13
I have a linex box that is setup with Fedora 13 I haven't used it in over a year and now it won't take the password that I have noted for that machine I want to clear everything out and reinstall Fedora so I can give it away for a birthday present to a engineer friend of mine. There is no data on ether the C drive or the E drive that I am worried about saving. I just need to get into it to reload the OS

You'll have to post more info on the password. You haven't given us any clues as to what type of password you're referring to. Where was the password set, in the BIOS?
If yes, well we can't help you there.

If it's just a password for your account in Fedora, well you don't need to know that in order to reformat the drive and re-install the OS.

Hmm. Linux doesn't have C: or E: drives. And you don't need to get into the system if you want to install Linux - just boot from the installation CD.

Something doesn't sound quite right here.

I agree w/ ijack. There are no C & E drives & something doesn't sound right.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.
