Default MySQL root password recovery

Greetings!
I've asked google, but no articles helped me, so I ask you.
I've installed The perfect Server: Fedora Core 8 and got problem with Quotes. OK, after system reinstall I've just bypassed quotes and installed everything. Now it's time to install ISP. During installation I've to enter MySQL database login and password. I 100% remember password, what I've entered during MySQL configuration, but it doesn't suit. I tried to recover MySQL root password different ways, but it doesn't help. When trying to start MySQL in safe mode I get this message:
nohup: ignoring input and redirecting stderr to stdout
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql

P.S.: on the parallel console I've active ISP installation, hope it's not the reason of error.
P.P.S.: I'm new to Linux.

Default

After several hours I have changed my root pass using "mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &" command line to enter my db without password.
