    :confused: I got a great deal on a PowerBook G3, OS X, through a police auction. However there was no install CD and I don't have the password to unlock it. My friend suggested to get it anyway and I could probably get advise online. So this is where I'm at.

    Can anyone suggest a way I can recover the password with out using an install CD? Or is buying an install CD my best option?

    Sorry, I don't think you can do that - for security reasons. Your best bet would be to get a disc off eBay - you know how to reset a password with the disc, I trust?

    Thanks for that. I'll just have to go and buy one then.
