How can I access a Mac without knowing the admin password?
Question by john /

I got a Mac mini 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4, running OS 10.4.10 from a company upgrading all their pre-Intel hardware. Nobody knows the admin password anymore so I can’t upgrade or install any software. Is there any way to change the password, short of reformatting the hard drive and starting all over? I can’t believe I’m the first person with this issue.
