I inherited a laptop with a version of free BSD on it - the only problem
( a major one) is that I have no clue what the login password is. Is
there any way around this?

Yes. Boot into single user mode and you can do anything you want.

See "I have forgotten the root password! What do I do?" at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/admin.html
