it still got the same'old OS X it came with, (Panther OS 10.3.9), but i got a prob.

i tried to change my password in the system>account panel, entered my old password, and where u should type the new password, there alreaddy where some "*", than i accidently hit the Enter key, so now the admin password is some standard password i dont know...

My regards,
Cas

Looks like you are in the market for the full retail version of Panther. Do not buy the silver/grey model specific discs.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
