I've decided to use from time to time my "old" Power G5. I've deleted everything reinstalling from disk and creating a new account.

When I try today to connect to the internet ask me for admin name and pass. The entered are good for enter into the account which is a standard one but without admin privileges.

Searching in the communities I find an answer suggesting to someone who deleted by mistake his admin account to enter following path in terminal:

dscl . -read /groups/admin GroupMembership


He got a bad answer: Error..etc . In my case the answer is:  root. I suppose that as root I would be able to give admin privileges but I do'nt know how to do it.


Any halp will be appreciated, thanks i advance.
