    I have a macbook with leopard on it.

    I'm not admin, because some people in school took away our admin rights for a few days ago. I managed to change it back to a few people in class, using single user mode. But when I tried it on my own mac, i couldnt get into singe user mode.

    I tried several times, and i tried all the other startup key commands. None were working, except option key (to boot into windows). But i had to enter a password to get to the option were i could enter in windows.

    Does anyone know what i could do to fix this problem? i wonder if they have activated the open firmware password, but i don't know how to delete it.

    Would your admin be rather unhappy with you doing this?

    No, not really. It was standard prosedure when we took our summer holiday. My computer is fully paid for by me now, so i can do whatever i like, the problem is that they won't help me so im trying to figure out a way my own.
