Hey everyone, I'm helping that someone here can give me a bit of quick Mac help. Here's the deal. I've got a Mac from about Y2K...it's running OSX, and about 2 years ago it had a bad crash. I reloaded OSX and while loosing the info from the main drive I still had my 40 gig external with most of my files. The external is set up in 4 partitions (for each of my roomates at the time) with one being a 'private' partition for me to backup important stuff and work/school stuff. It was accessable only to the 'ROOT' user. Now, since I had to re-format the startup disk, and I haven't used this computer for much more than video/audio stuff in the past few years, I can't for the life of me, remember how to set up the ROOT user function. I would assume that I could just re-set up the user info and the same password and get back in? I've gotten into the partition by booting into 9, but it's a real pain... Who can qive me a quick rundown of how to do this?
