Boot of the OS X install disc that came with your iBook. (insert disc and hold down "c" key when you restart).

When you get to the language selection screen, go up to the "installer" menu at the top of the screen and select "password reset utility".

Use that to change the password back.

Nice and easy, takes 2 minutes to do.
