Force Reset admin password mac os x 10.3.4

Someone I know reinstalled mac os x 10.3.4 onto my mac, deleting everything. I dont know the admin password or even my password I had to get the biatch to log me on.

I also dont have permission to open ANYTHING except for safari and itunes. When I try to open something is just says i dont have permission to open it.

She also stole my mac os x install cds so im basically screwed.

Is there ANY way I can get the master and admin passwords?

I dont care how but If I have to restart the computer, i will only get one chance because I dont even know my password.

Dude you're 15 is the person that "stole" your machine one of your parents? Admit it your mother uses parental control on you to stop you viewing porn?

Buy any retail Panther (should be cheap) or Tiger disks and use those to reset the admin password (or just do a complete reinstall, for that matter).

Yup... without a system disc, you are out of luck.

What did you do to piss her off so much?
