    Retriving lost mac admin password details

    A school I visit has 3 mac's in it's artroom. One is on the Win 2003 network but the guy who set the 3 up left and hadn't addedd the other 2 to the network. No one has contact with him nor have they got the password and admin log on details - any suggestions please?

    Boot from the OS / install disc and use the password tool to reset the root password.

    If you don't have the OS X CD/DVD you can log into Single user mode if its not disabled. A good reason why it should be though...

    Single User mode reset
