Remove administrator password without reinstall disks?

I just bought a used iBook and it has a password for the admin account. I do not have the OS reinstall disks. How can I remove the password?

I was able create a new admin account by pressing command-s at startup, and then following instructions I found online. Then I deleted the other admin account. Works great now!

Without an original system installation disk or a retail system disk you can't remove the password. Try a simple press of the return key and see if it works. Also according to cryptologists 1/3 of all passwords are "password".

Actually, he gave a very good link with a lot of good password information, albeit 4 days late ;-)
