What to do if I forgot password?

How can I get into switches/routers and into the enable mode if I have forgotten the password for console, vty, and enable?

Thanks

Re: What to do if I forgot password?

Cisco has a how-to document posted for registered CCO users:

You basically need to reboot with a console attached and interrupt the bootup sequence to reprogram the router or switch from the ROM Monitor (rommon) interface. Your system will take an outage to administer this procedure.
