You need a Tiger (10.4) or later install DVD. Beg borrow or buy one and then startup the ibook from the DVD by holding the "C" key during startup. Then when the installer wants to install a new system, you can instead choose change password from the Utilities pulldown menu on the first screen (after selecting the language of your choice-It says"Welcome to the Mac OS X Installer"). Very simple process, and you don't "Have" to reinstall the OS(unless there are other problems). Then restart and you should be golden! Or this time of year, maybe a good porter?

The store that sold this should have been able to do this... ?

Good luck!

I going back to my Sierra Nevada Pale Ale now!
