    Nevermind guys, I used the installation disks and used the reset password utility.

    Is there any other way to change the admin password other than the above method?

    Might as well keep this thread going for informative purposes...

    I don't think so, but the method above is easy, insert the mac osx installation disk and hold down 'C' as the computer is booting, the reset. Simple. You don't lose anything at all.
