Well, you have to be logged in as the 'owner' user. Go to
Control Panels --> Multiple Users --> Open up the user named 'owner'
and change the password.

Good luck.

Or use the File Sharing control panel to change it. Dumb security hole. You don't even have to enter the old password.

Or boot from CD and move the multiple users prefs... etc.
