Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
If you're running Jaguar, and you know your short user name (the same as your home folder name) you can do the following.
1) boot into single user mode (boot holding Apple + S)
2) type "fsck -y" and hit enter/return
3) repeat step 2 until it says that "The volume [your hard drive name] appears to be OK"
4) type "mount -uw /" and hit enter/return (this mounts the hard drive)
5) type "SystemStarter" and hit enter/return (this will start up quite a bit, including NetInfo, which is what you need)
6) type "passwd YOURUSERNAME" and hit enter, where YOURUSERNAME is your short user name
7) enter your password, and hit enter (you won't see it typing)
8) verify your password, and hit enter (again, you won't see it being typed)
9) type "reboot" and hit enter
Your password will now be what you just set it to. Depending on how your friend changed your password, you may have trouble getting into your keychain, because it will still be what he/she changed it to, but at least you'll have access to your computer.
