    Hi Jack, and a warm welcome to the forums!

    I'm guessing you don't remember what you used when first setting up the Mac?

    Tried logging into the Admin account to see if you made a Clue for the Password?

    If nothing else...

    1. Insert the Tiger Mac OS X Install disc , then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Change Password from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, *you must select your language first.)*
    *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access the Menubar at top.*
