One of my friend are having hard time to remember hist ubuntu intrepid ibex 8.10 password, and he asked me is it possible to set the passwordless ? , after some googling around i found this forum http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=513820

you can simply changes your encrypted password of your user on /etc/shadow and set it to U6aMy0wojraho

Example :

# vim /etc/shadow

look for  your username, in my case it will be test

You just need to changes the bold text into  U6aMy0wojraho
then save and quit
Then reboot it
# reboot
then go to your sheel or GUI to test it :)
I have test it on ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10
