i just answered my own question:::

shell> mysql -u root mysql
mysql> UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('new_password')
           WHERE user='root';

You can, in MySQL Version 3.22 and above, use the SET PASSWORD statement: 

shell> mysql -u root mysql
mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR root=PASSWORD('new_password');
