Hi Gang


I probably should know how to do this:


Picked up a used G5 Dual Core 2.0 on Ebay which had a reformatted system drive 10.4 Tiger. Took that system drive out and put it in a G5 SP 1.8, and gave it to my friend. He in turn tried to load software in the system which apparently was configured for a password during reformat. We both do not know what that password is/was? Will system preferences allow us to RE-CONFIGURE getting rid of the password requirement. Or will it be necessary to reformat once again?


Thank you
