I just recently got a iMac from my little cousin and he made two admin accounts but forgot the password to both of them? Answered

I need to find a way to get into them/ reset password/anything to use the computer. Oh and it's running OS9?

I've only done this in tiger but it might work for 9. Hold down apple and S key upon switching on intill termanial shows mount -uw / rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone shutdown -h now Personally I don't think this will work as the unix is quite different, Just get the os9 disks off ebay.
