Thanks for looking and I'm sure you know how to do this and since ,I'm new to Apple I need your help. I'm actually looking to wipe my computer complete I'm not concerned about my data on there because it's not much. The reason for this is because I forgot what my password is and I need to start FRESH.
Thanks in advance!

I guess you can do that, but if you forgot your password and want to reset it all you have to do is pop in the os install disk and then go to utilities at the top and then reset password. If you're running anything before 10.4 (i.e. 10.2 or 10.3) do the same thing except instead of selecting utilities on the menu bar, go to installer and then reset password.
