If you dont have Tiger go to the Applications folder and click Utilities then Terminal. 2) Now once it has loaded type: sudo -s 3) This is where you need the Admin password, the charicors wont come up but it is owrking so type it and press enter. 4) Now it should say root insted of your username 5) Now type the following: passwd 6) It should now ask for a new password, once agein the charictors wont come up. After that press enter. It will then ask you to confirm so type it agein. 7) Now log out or use fast switching and click Login Window and if you have a list of users then click Other...
