If we forget our Linux root password, we can change it by changing grub's boot options.
But in this case, we also set a grub password and forgot both passwords. How can we recover both?
Boot from a LiveCD, then mount the / harddrive partition. You can now chroot into your harddrive and just run passwd as root there changing the root pw. That's also the way to change to grub password.
