10.5: Reset a user's password in single user mode
Authored by: bolah1313 on Apr 25, '08 07:51:35AM

You don't have to worry about the Keychain password. Once you change the user's password and can log into the computer all need to do is simply go into the Accounts preference pane and change the password there to either the new password or something different if you so choose. That action will then automatically change the Keychain Password. I've done this several hundred times on Macs from 10.0 through 10.4.11 I haven't yet had to change a password on a Leopard box but I'm sure it will work just the same.

10.5: Reset a user's password in single user mode

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work with 10.5. I just did this and now can't access the login keychain (OS 10.5.6). Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way around this.
