Hi razor7!
This has been discussed before, if on a more complex level:

Basically you can't get your password back if you don't know C++ or something similar, as you need to look at the source file crypt.cpp.

Or you can take the easy route. Download this ftp password recovery program and make your life simple. All you have to do is start the program up and and have your ftp program try to connect to localhost or 127.0.0.1. Then the program will echo out the password. It is very nice for people like me who are working with a lot of clients and cannot remember hundreds of passwords.

Hope that helps!
