Lost User Account Password
Some little delight has set a password on my laptop and doesnt know what they changed it to!
I am 10562 miles away from my OSX media so unable to reset the password that way.
I did a google search and found this:
macosxhints.com - 10.5: Reset a user's password in single user mode
Does anyone know if this works?

Yes, it will work.
Single user mode is often what's used to reset lost/hacked unix/linux passwords.

I was gonna say if that failed am sure you could of gone to an apple store and just borrowed some os x leopard discs in oz just for the sake of resetting your password.
