10.5: Correction
Authored by: las_vegas on Aug 07, '09 11:53:03AM
Unfortunately, this hint has been very much abridged, leaving out very important steps...

After logging as root, you then setup the network normally and install all updates (requires multiple restarts.). Then to return the Mac to the initial Welcome sequence mode and disable the root account, you need to launch Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities) and enter:

rm /private/var/db/.AppleSetupDone

Quit Terminal and launch "Directory Utility" (same folder) and select "Disable Root" from the Edit menu.

Once the above is done, the Mac is ready to ship, fully updated.
