sleepy_monkey is offline can call him and get the password that he used....i am not sure how to bypass the password. to install any software he would have to have that password.

And call the seller to get the missing disks: these are essential for troubleshooting and if you need to reinstall either the bundled software that came with the Mac or the OS.
