You can unplug the computer, open the case and remove the CMOS battery. Replace the battery and plug it in and try again.
If this doesn't work, go through the process again and see if there is a set of jumpers close to the battery. They will say something like clrcmos. If you change the jumper to clear the CMOS for about 15 seconds and then set it back to the default, you should be OK.
This is for a startup password.
Now if he has created a password in Windows itself, there is a way to reset it, but you will need a WIN XP startup disk.
Try this first: Start the computer in safe mode (pressing the F8 key repeatedly on startup. Choose safe mode and log on as administrator. Most people, when setting a password for themselves, forget to password protect the administrator account! Now go to his account and change the password or remove it.
