First of all when you set up your password originally did you put in a password Hint? If so, if you type an incorrect password 3 times trying to log in it will show you your hint. I recommend trying this. You might find you have a hint which will help you remember! If not:
You can reset your administrator password by inserting your MAC OS X Install Disc 1. Then Restart your computor and hold down the C key as it starts up. 2) Choose Utilities>Reset Password from the menu bar and follow the onscreen instructions there. I know of no other ways to get back your password. If this is helpful, please vote or comment! Good luck!
After the third attempt it should give you a clue - if you set it up to do so.
Just check that there is a password - when it asks next time just click continue. I'm surprised at the number of users that don't have a password!
You can reset the password by starting up the computer from the installation DVD (You have got that haven't you?) and using the reset password utility.

Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
Set the user name of your original administrator account. Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
