Hi all

How would I go about resetting my PowerBook to original settings? We're thinking of selling it in order to upgrade.

Its a G4 Titanium 15" on OSX 10.3.9

Thanks
Stan

OK, is that it? No need to access the bios or press any of the function keys on boot up like a pc?

There is no BIOS. Just put the install/restore discs in and do a full, clean install.
