    Move from tiger to Leopard
    Hello everyone. I'm new in Mac, and new in this forum.

    I got a MacBook, builded in 2007. It have Tiger, but I want a leopard desktop. What can I do?

    second, I'm with a litle problemes. I got it from a friend. I don't know the root password. Is that any way to reset it?

    Thanks, and sorry for my Inglish. I'm from Cape Verde (Portugues)

    Your English is ok. We can understand it.

    You have to get the root password from your friend. I think you can install leopard and that will let you set a new password.

    Regardless of the password situation, you need to buy Leopard install discs in order to install Leopard.

    Buy the retail version of Leopard and do a completely fresh install (erase and install) and you get to reset the admin password too.
