    Default Powermac g4 - no user

    hi! I bought an old Powermac g4. The owner fucked around with the hdd and now the System boots but there is no user. I he Lost his Tiger Installation Disc and i don't want to buy one. Is there a way to set up a new root without reinstalling the whole crap?

    Bye
