I have an older Macbook Pro with 10.6.8 that I don't use very much, and I've forgotton my system password so I am unable to download any updates.


The original OS was Tiger; it now has Leopard on it.  When I put in the Leopard start up disc my options are:

  1. Install Mac OS.app;
  2. Optional Installs; or
  3. Instructions


When I click on the Install MAC OS X.app it will restart my computer, which of course I don't want to do cuz I'm afraid it will wipe out all the software I've added since I installed Leopard and I don't want to do that if I don't have to.


Can someone help me figure out how to rest the system password?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
