Reset mysql 5.1 root pass

I had to install a couple of dbs on a mysql server which refused to recognize me as its root… I kept receiving the following not-so-friendly message:
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
As it turns out, something was messed up during the installation and mysql did not recognize the given root password (mistype perhaps?). Anyway, I had to reset the pass, and this is how I did it.

Word to CHM source code

I have just finished updating an old buggy sourceforge project and decided to share code and binaries.
