Hi Bobby
You will need to get an OS X installation DVD. Try eBay.Don't go for anything lower than 10.4 (Tiger)10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) should run fine on this machine.Don't bother with 10.7 or 10.8

Hi;


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/fsck -y
/sbin/mount -uw /
/sbin/SystemStarter
You will then see various services starting up.
4. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd [username]
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:
reboot
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 don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Borrow one!

No, because that model printer is just rubbish. Throw the thing out and purchase a laser Brother HL-2170 and it will work just splendid with the Apple PowerBook G4.

Can I upgrade OS x 10.5.8 to 10.6.8 from the hard drive (without CD)


OS 10.6 came as a option of DVD or USB stick.

On another computer you could create a disk image of the OS disk, transfer it to your computer via USB disk and mount it. This will allow you to install the update.
