I reset my user / admin password using the install disc because I forgot the original password. However, this did not reset my keychain access password, which must be the same as the original one that I have forgotten.

I can't figure out how to reset this password without remembering the old one and the 'help' is useless. Any ideas?

Powerbook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    Not doable. As discussed in http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1631 (which, AFAICT, applies to Leopard),

    *+I don't remember my original (former) account password+*
    +If this is the case, you'll have to delete the keychain.+

    +In Keychain Access, choose Keychain List from the Edit menu.+
    +Delete the "login" keychain.+
    +The next time you log in to the account, you can save your current password in a keychain.+
