I have a computer running Mac OS X, and I have a Linux live CD (I have Ubuntu 11.04, 10.4, and BackTrack 5). How do I blank the password on Mac OS X from my start CD, what program is necessary, etc.?

You can do it in single user mode without a Linux live CD or an installer DVD.

Use your OSX DVD if available. Why do you need to use Linux?

Agreed, this is very straightforward to do from the OSX installer. – SplinterReality Oct 12 '11 at 9:00
