What you need to do is to hold down CMD+S while the comp is starting up. then you will get a scary looking screen with white text and black background. type these in and after each line press the Enter/Return key.
Type:
mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

If you did it correctly after you reboot your comp you should have the Setup screen...create an Admin and then delete the master password using the Security Panel in System Preferences.
