How do I remove my admin password?
I am selling my PowerMac G4 with 10.3 OS on it, and I wanted to remove my admin password from it. I went to System Preference > Accounts and thought if I just remove the password I entered there, it will work. When I did that first it gave me a warning saying "You did not enter password, sure you wanna do that" I clicked OK, then it gave me "You cannot change your password to the password you entered" And it reverts it back to the way things were. Does anyone know how I can remove my admin password?? If so plleeasee help this poor soul

why not just do a full restore on the system then the buyer cant recover anything
and that will get rid of the password
Edit: damn 1 second too slow

Yeah, boot from your Install CD and launch Disk Utility then erase the disk. If you're really paranoid you can overwrite the entire disk 35 times with random data.
Then make a clean install.
