Hi, I'm pretty new to macs and a friend gave me her old powerbook G4. I deleted her account and have myself as the adm. When trying to delete old programs (disney games and other stuff etc..) I cannot because when I drag it to the garbage can it says I am not the owner. How can I erase old programs? Even before I deleted her account it would not let me do it, even when using her account


Any help is appreciated. Thanks!


PS- Whats the best .way to upgrade from 10.2.8?

PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.2.x)
