    I just bought a used Imac G5, and have some problems with installing Leopard.
    The ting is that the computer already has Leopard installed and has a administrator account that I don’t have the password for. Im new to the leopard interface, and have tried to boot up and press C to start a clean installation but it dident work. Is there anything else that I can do?

    i have posted this before but dident get any anser.

    Assuming you have the leopard disk, insert the disk and Boot to it (hold alt or c on boot up)

    Agree to the licensing, and then click on utilities in the top tool bar.

    Select reset password.

    Select the volume when asked, and then the account. Enter new password settings.

    Edit, if you want to do an erase and install, simply boot to the disk, select your destination. You will then be asked to click on Options-> Erase and install.
