Default MySQL password

Thank you for the advice.
I was unable to change the password though
HTML Code:
mysqladmin -u root password yourrootsqlpassword
You cannot use 'password' command as mysqld runs
 with grant tables disabled (was started with --skip-grant-tables).
Use: "mysqladmin flush-privileges password '*'" instead
root@server1:/home/bigal# mysqladmin flush-privileges password '*'
mysqladmin: unable to change password; error: 'Can't find any matching row in the user table'
As you see I unsuccessfully tried the alternative '*' wildcard, but which ever way I tried I was unable to set a password.
