Hi, Everybody!


Trying to overcome some bugs on my MacBook, I decided to erase some folders from system and install Mac OS X from its original DVD. Bad idea. Now I only have one account, which may be the Admin one, but appears as a Standar one. I'm blocked now, cause I cannot change it, create a new admin account, activate the Root User, neither do a Software Uptade. Note I'm running now  Mac OS X (10.6.3).


I hope I can avoid formatting my hard disk and all that it implies. I'm wondering if I can create a new admin account or change the actual one since Terminal, because I can run it starting up my machine from the Mac OS DVD.


Thanks for your attention and help.Captura de pantalla 2014-05-08 a las 9.39.52.png
