No, but you can use the Mac OS X install CD to reset the pass word.

actually, I have the first powerbook G3 made, which came with OS 8.
I've upgraded to 9.1 , but moved last month and can't figure what I changed my password to, and don't remember doing it.
Basically, i need the "special code" of keys that i guess you push, and Apple will charge me $50 for the information.
So if anyone has super-secret info, or links to such info, i'd appreciate it.

I went down to the local mac shop, and the young guy there was nice enough to call apple for me for free, get the special code, and solve the problem.
It's amazing how stupid most of the techs are, or how unwilling they are to help, short of telling you "well, you might as well buy a new mac".
I fixed my old powerbook, and I will not buy another powerbook until this one is on it's very last leg.
