Hi.... help pls. I have a elonex webbook with ubuntu from CPW last year and new out of the box my youngest seems to have set a user/admin password and cannot remember it! I don't know anything about this os and i'm sorry to admit am a windows user. have googled for help with password reset but cannot find anything meaningful.

is there some keystrokes at startup that will let us recover the webbook back to factory state so we can set it all up again?

I don't want to ring elonex at costly 1per min. as a last resort can i hook up an external cd rom and run windows xp into it? it has 80gb hard drive which is ample but I am worried re drivers wifi etc

thanks
