    This is the OS X Server 10.6 forum, and the server software isn't usually found on MacBook Pro systems — I'll guess that you're really not running the server software here.   (I mention this because resetting the administrative passwords with OS X Server software installed can be quite different...)

     

    If you have a second administrative login, you can use that.

     

    If you don't....  If you're running 10.6, boot the installer DVD and use the Utilities menu to reset your password. 

     

    If you're running 10.7 or 10.8, here are some official instructions and also see this or this for some related sequences.
