I have a mac OS 8.5 and the user has forgotten the password to his account.  I have no other accounts that I can log into either.  How should I go about resetting his password?

I'm not sure that you can do it without TechTool Pro that works with OS 8.x.  OS 8 had no facility for mulituser access, it was just a password.

You might have to do a reinstall of OS 8 to reset the password....

Have you tried booting while holding down the shift key?
