I am new to macs. My work has one from a former employee. We would like to remove his account and use it again.

I was reading a few things about it, and ran into some problems. So can someone please help me out.

Here are the problems:

Boot Camp is installed, so I am unable to boot into Single user mode.(to reset the root password)

We Do not have the OS X install disk, as well as from what I've read, since Boot camp is installed we cannot boot to the disk since the Primary boot drive is the Selection drive for Mac or Windows.

The Mac is a MacBook Air
OS X V 10.5

I am able to get into OS X, as it doesn't need the password to login at startup, but I can't make a new account, or do any administrative tasks. Can someone please advise me on some steps I can take.
QUOTE Thanks
