Default 2 Questions About Ubuntu

I am forced to use my backup, backup computer that is almost 10 years old. It is one that I installed Ubuntu on (dual-booted with XP) several months ago. However, for the life of me, I can't remember my Ubuntu login password. I've tried everything I can think of. Are both the username and password case-sensitive? Is there anyway to bypass or figure out my password?

I have also been considering removing Ubuntu and trying a different distro like Mint. This machine only has 512 MB RAM in it, so booting into Windows XP and running Firefox takes freaking forever. I'm not sure how to uninstall Ubuntu? How would I go about deleting Ubuntu and then installing another distro?
