Mac Os X 10.4.2
1. Click Restart at the login window

2. While the computer is restarting, hold down ?Command-S? until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.

3. At the Localhost% prompt type:

/sbin/fsck -y
/sbin/mount -uw /

You will then see various services starting up.

4. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:

passwd [username]

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

(Though I?ve not tried it, it appears you can type niutil -list . /users to get a list if users if you do not know the username?.if someone wants to verify this, I would be most appreciative).

5. After entering the new password, type:


Mac OS X 10.3

If you have 10.3, Baxter?s method should work.

Here?s the same info Baxter put up, just a little easier to see,

EXCLUDE THE QUOTATION MARKS, but make sure to type in the spaces.

First type in: ?/sbin/fsck -y?

Followed by: ?/sbin/mount -uw /?

Then, type in:

?/usr/libexec/register_mach_bootstrap_servers /etc/mach_init.d?

Next: ?cd /var/db/netinfo?

Then: ?netinfod -s local?

Followed by: ?SystemStarter?

Finally, type: ?passwd root?

You?ll be asked to come up with a new password. If you want to change a login?s password, substitute ?root? with the username.

After that, type ?reboot?

Remember, to EXCLUDE the quotations marks, but type in all the junk inbetween ?even the spaces!

Thanks again Baxter and Elliot.
