Thank you very much for your help !
I found a solution an it's working !
To enter in the LILO command line press SHIFT key.
Type linux init=/bin/bash
or linux init=/bin/sh
Now you are logged as root, but .. read-only.
To have full acces:
mount /dev/sda1 -o remount,rw
if your / partition is "sda1" .
Then use passwd to enter the desired password.
That's all !
Thank you very much again for your help !
PS: the problem with the root password is a bug of Debian distribution ??
