Question about Apple Power Mac G5
If you've forgotten your password, you can reset it with the discs that came with your computer:
Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.
Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.
Note: The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
