    Am considering buying an ibook clamshell for my daughter..Saw one on ebay for bargain price but says they can't access system cause they don't know passoword (from relative) for OS9...How can you get this up and running...Maybe just boot with anohter disk and reload new system or can one bypass the password somehow...Advice (quickly since only an hour to go) appreciated...rick

    You can just reload the system if you have the disks. If it was OS X you could reset the password. I can't think of any way to do it in OS 9 however.
