Like an idiot, i reset my password and can´t login in now.

Normally in this case i download an ubuntu/gentoo live cd, but that seems overkill. is there a lean recovery thing that I can put on a usb stick, boot into it and erase my password?

http://distfiles.gentoo.org/releases/amd64/autobuilds/current-iso/install-amd64-minimal-20140206.iso 254M I've done that before but always keep both a thumbdrive and cd with the current systemrescuecd available. You can even boot a diskless system from the cd to read all of those scary infested emails.
