My 10.5.4 ibook G4 has been set up to automatically log me in to my account, becausae i have a problem with forgetting my passwords,

I want to make a new account for my friend, but I am unable to because i do not remember my password, i've searched on google but seem to find no way to do this,

Is there any way to do this without the OS Disk? (I've lost it)
QUOTE Thanks
