I have a ibook g4 that i forgot the password on i followed the command s directions and the reboot.  it reboots into setup were  i have followed all the steps and completed.   then a restart is required only evreytime it boots back up im forced to setup again.   i was able to use my ibook before because it logged in at start up but i was able to upgrade or make any real changes because i couldnt remember password 

so now im even farther from being able to use my ibook    does anyone have a fix  i do not have any disc so cant try that unless you coukd also provide a place to get it

    The best thing to do is obtain a replacement restore or retail disk.

    These can be purchased on Amazon or eBay. If you choose the retail disk, look for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)

    They are black with an 'X' on them. Use this disk to reformat the drive and install mac OS X.


    Best of Luck.
