    Start up your 10.5 install disk again.

    Once you are on the install screen check the menu for change password.

    From there select the user you are using and change the password.

    Oh, since this is a used computer, I suggest creating a new user and using that instead of the one that came with the machine.

    Well if I got a new computer, I would erase and install a clean 10.5.

    Did you try NOT entering a password though?
