PW Problem With Old Emac
I was given a old emac awhile ago, I just had the time to play with it but it asks for a pw for log in screen, and there's only 1 account.. The system was used at a school many years ago. I only got a emac for keyboard or anything was wonder how can I go about resetting the pw or logging in.. Only thing i was told was that it was rubbing 10.3.5 or something... New to mac's.

open single user mode (command +s)
mount the drive ( in that version it should tell you right there)
type in this EXACTLY
this makes the machine think it is new and gives you the setup screen.
i have done this in 10.2, 10.4, and 10.6 so it seems to be universal.
There is no question about it, my sanity is questionable.
I'm not on during the week, only weekends if I'm lucky!
