    Password Problem
    I just got a used ibook and don't have the previous admin's password. Is there any way to override the current password so I can delete his account and create my new one?

    You need the OS X install disc to do it

    When I click install OS X and click "ok" to restart the computer and begin installing the computer asks for the password.
