Re: recovering admin's password
The issue I see with the guide you posted is people are calling him out for syntax error's and claiming it does not work. Here is the official documentation and you should always try to use the official Ubuntu Documentation where possible.
EDIT: I just noticed you said it has 12.10 installed. You are not using a supported version of Ubuntu right now anyway so I would consider downloading and installing 14.04 as this is a LTS and will give you five years of support and then you can set a new password in the installer.

We all know Linux is great... it does infinite loops in 5 seconds.
