Forgot my password Help

I just picked up a used Mac Mini on eBay and started to remove the previous owners rights. I changed the password and rebooted it and the welcome screen asked for a password to axcess the computer. Well, it wasn't the one I thought I changed it to nor was it the previous owners one either. Any thoughts or do I just have to send it back to Apple? Thanks for any advice, I am described by the media as "Halo" mac purchaser, who just loves the iPod. So speak slowly and I just might get the advice you give me!

bam!


Get the disks, go nuts, and enjoy the new Mac mini!

and if you don't have the boot disks, you can order a new set from Apple. They're ~$39, IIRC (which I'm probably not)

Find a set of Mac OS X disks, boot from it by holding down C at startup and follow instructions from Apple.

Edit: D@mn, beaten...
