Start in Safe Mode. This should allow login to the Administrator account. From there you can edit accounts. You won't be able to change the original account's password (I don't think) since you don't know the original password, but you can delete and recreate that account or create a completely different one.

You can also download additional utilities such as a linux password recovery bootdisk that will recover your password for you.
