  Reset Password using Live CD does not explain how to mount drive

Bug description:
  I have Ubuntu installed in a VirtualBox and somehow wasn't able to get
  into recovery mode via Grub. So I tried to reset my password using the
  Live CD, as described here: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help

  However, Step 2 "Mount Your Drive" is not explained and frankly I have
  no idea what to do. It would be great if you could spell it out in
  more detail.
