Instructions for the Mac OS X Password Recovery.
Although there’s no real way to recover a lost root password, you can change the root password even if you do not know the current one. You must have physical access to the machine in order to accomplish this task.
1. Click Restart at the login window
2. While the computer is restarting, hold down “Command-S” until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.
3. At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw /
You will then see various services starting up.
4. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.
(Though I’ve not tried it, it appears you can type niutil -list . /users to get a list if users if you do not know the username….if someone wants to verify this, I would be most appreciative).
5. After entering the new password, type:
6. At the login window, enter the username with the new password. Once you are logged in, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your user’s password, or create a new user account.
Note: this may not work for newer versions of OS X; I think they did something about it in a security update. I hope this helps you with Macintosh password recovery.
Note: give some times between tasks, Follow to the letter.

You are trying to do something that has been disallowed by the administrator,
To do so you have to have the Admin acces (Admin Password)
As you stated this has been used by someone else earlier, so you have to contact him.
If you cant do that, there is also one more solution. to remove the admin password.
To do so, THE BEST OF ALL is to download the Hirens boot CD, (This is the ultimate tools collection for you PC, and FREE)
Download here, and burn it on a CD, boot from it and goto the Password recovery menu. There are lot of tools in it.
If you don't want to go throught this long process (which i will not recommend, its very usefull CD)
Even though, the tool that this CD uses, and i'v also tested it can be downloaded here.
Its call NTPWD.
Just burn it on CD, or copy in the USB (Boot from CD or USB)
run ntpwd.exe ( it will ask you which account to remove the password ).
Kinda its done, if properly follwed the steps.
If helpful, Kindly Do Rate

If you are running OS X put the appropriate system disk in the disk drive. Boot up using the c key. Once booted go up to the file menu and go to the reset password menu and reset your password.
