Because the details on how to perform this action (if not later system build macOS)

are not applicable as described in that later Support article ~ you may need to see:

Mac OS X (10.6 & Before) -- Resetting a Forgotten Account Password:


Five Ways to Reset a Lost Administrator Password - TidBits:


Also covered, is some reference to Resetting the Keychain Password.

Your much older PowerMac likely isn't going to see help from iCloud.

{..Hopefully any who follow will read details & product vintage addressed here..}
