    Hi,

    Does anyone know how the master password can be reset?

    I think you'd probably be able to reset it using the OSX install disks, booting from them and then selecting Reset Password from the Installer menu which will give you a list of passwords you can reset. :)

    Sounds like this needs to be a Guide in the macguides.

    Ah, but the eternal question - what categories?

    When referring to the master password, I assume we're talking about the main Administrator password, right? :)
