    Can you complete the OS X installation without supplying an Administration password? I'm chatting with a guy on another forum, http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=299649 , that claims he's come across Macs were he just hit enter when prompted for the Admin Password. This can't be possible?

    I wouldn't see why you couldn't have a blank password. It's a bad idea, of course, and I'm not silly enough to put it to the test. :)

    When my friend made me a guest account on her iMac G4 (I was dog sitting, and I was considering the switch!) it even needed a password for it.

    GRANTED, this was 10.2 (how they haven't upgraded confuses me!)

    I'm pretty sure that you NEED a password-- it's the thing that makes os x so super-dee-dooper. (Can't install Apps without password, blablabla)
