I have a 2008 MacBook. I would like to erase the HD and restore the OSX from CDs that came with the MacBook. From videos I see about the Disk Utilities erasing the HD and then reinstalling Snow Leopard. I think I understand about doing that. The question I have is it going to ask me for the iTunes account and password that purchased the Snow Leopard? The issue I have is that I am a new user and this laptop was purchased used from a one owner and I don’t know the iTunes account and password that he used to purchase the OSX. I have the Snow Leopard CD and it is currently on the laptop running. I also have the original CDs that came with the laptop. Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
