No Administrator Account

The only user account is not an administrator and cannot install programs.  Do not have original administrator password, so attempted to change the administrator password by booting off the OS CD.  When I choose the option to reset password from the Installer menu, it only shows the current standard user and the System Administrator (root).  It does not show any other administrator account. How do I change the standard user account into an administrator?
