I just bought a second-hand PB G4 15" (the last one - beautiful machine!). The seller installed Leopard but also set up an admin account - his name, no password.


I've now set up my own admin account and migrated data across from another Mac. Can I now delete the seller's user account, even though it was the first user? (Reinstalling the system wasn't an option - there are no Leopard disks, only the original Tiger disks.)
