    ok, so i have an old ibook g4
    specs are as follows...

    cpu speed: 1.2ghz
    L2 Cache (per CPU) 512KB
    number of cpu's: 1
    memory: 768MB
    Boot rom version: 4.8.7F1
    Buss speed: 133MHz

    My question is, i want to delete everything on it..passwords, information and everything w/o having to re-install the OS. is this possible? like a hard reset?

    if not, how can i install mac osx tiger?

    does it come in like 3 cds?

    EDIT: THANKS I figured it out! Google is my friend!

    If you don't want to reformat (which is the only way to fully remove all personal information), then just create a new User Account with Administrator privileges then deleted your old accounts.

    hmm just like a pc, but will i lose any privaledges by deleting the master account?


    also my aunt forgot her passwd: so i cant make her a new there a way i can reset the passwd without the cd's?
