I have been researching doing this and have discovered that each version
change (8.10>9.04>9.10, etc.) has each slightly different setup
procedures. Perhaps minute differences here and there, but none the less
In all my reading, the Ubuntu documentation I have read, states during
setup, that you will need to write down the administrative password. And
that you will need this later.
Here is your problem. Said password is encrypted (a hash sting, I
believe) and it is difficult to read what you set the password as.
Sorry, but I believe you may, I repeat, may have to re-install to
properly set your password during setup.
Sorry, others might know a way, but this has been my personal
experience. Sorry for the not so good news on how to fix your issue.
