    Ok so I just got a a new MBP 15" and I'm having a slight problem, nothing with it's OS but a "user error" LOL. I forgot my password I can't even restore it or anything because it asks me for it when I try to restore the OS. What would be the best thing to do in my case? I'm able to use it like I am now but incase I want to do anthing that requires my pass I cannot do. My Box and everything is in LA and now I'm in the Bay Area it's a 10-12 hour drive there and back incase I need something thats in the box... Please HELP ME OUT!

    Boot up from your Install CDs (disk1) and do NOT install anything. On the top bar there are a number of options, one of which, I think, is tools, under this there is the option to reset the password. Good luck
