    problem:
    working on a mac osx.4 setup on another account with different password.

    need to find out if i can get pass the password.

    not sure who the admin is.

    how would you take care of this problem? there has got to be some way other then uninstalling osx.4 and reinstalling. have a lot of files under the account that i dont know the password to. thnx.
