    Basically I was messing around with an old G4 running mac OS 9. I have no experience with Mac, but enabled user accounts and created two user accounts (One password protected, one not). I then logged out of the original "owner" account to see if I had successfully created the additional accounts. When I got to the new login screen I tried to log back in on the "owner" account and couldnt because it was now asking for a password. And since a password was never set for the account I have no idea what to do. Is there some default "owner" password that activates when you enable multiple user start-up?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    you would have to boot from the Mac OS 9 disc and delete the password preference files

    Okay thanks,

    Are you sure there's no other way? Or do you have any idea what the computer assigned as the password?
