    Welcome to Mac-Forums, ComputerNoob.

    Your best (and only) option would be to buy a full install version of Mac OS X Tiger and using this method to change the password Mac OS X: Changing or resetting an account password.

    Once you change the password(s) by using the install disk, you could burn any files you need to a DVD or CD, then use the install disk to reformat the drive and install another system.

    If you are in the vicinity of an Apple store, A "genius" might change the passwords for you, and you could do the rest later.
