Hey everybody. Just got my hands on my powerbook. Its been running great except somehow I managed to type in the same wrong password twice when putting in the admin password. I cant install any software or anything! I know there must be some way of doing an erase and re-install to reset everything? Also, if I do this, will all the software that came with it still be there? Please help me out :eek: :D

Thanks!

Stick your Mac OS X installer disc in. It can reset the admin password for you. Somewhere in the Installer or Disk Utility menus in the versions of those programs on the disc.
