    How do you reset an iBook?
    Hello all,

    I am selling my iBook for an upgrade to a PowerBook this weekend. The aBay bidder wants the iBook in a 'new condition' therefore means that I have to reset the system before posting it tomorrow at the post office.

    I have never done it before and the manual (I think!) does not explain or state how to reset the iBook.

    So, I guess I would like to know how to do it and I'll be thankful to whoever helps.

    Cheers.

    Put in the OS X CD, Boot Holding C, go to disk utility and format the drive then re-install OS X.
