    I have a friend who forgot his main password
    for his G5 Tower.

    Is there any way to get into the System without
    Nuking it ?

    Boot off of your installer DVD and Reset Password.

    Failing that single user mode.

    If you don't have the system DVD, google for "AppleSetupDone".
