    So I upgraded to Leopard and it has somehow forgotten my admin password. How do I reset this?

    Did you check the Apple Support website? There are knowledge-base articles about this very issue.

    Best as I can remember, I think you have to start up from the DVD and change the password for the administrator. Then you can log in as the administrator and get your admin powers back.
