I recently bought a used Mac from an acquaintance.   I am not able to install my programs because it keeps asking for an administrator and a password.   It's very unlikely I can find out this information.  Is there any way around this?   The fellow I bought it from says the administrator is a former client of his from years ago, and he has no idea what her password is.   I'm thinking I ought to be able to install simple programs without knowing this person's password.   Thanks...

PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
