New laptop, how to put administrator password in?

  johnem 16:32 07 Dec 07

just acquired new Toshiba laptop, did not put admin password in on first start up as not sure what password daughter requires. What procedure should I follow to add this password at a later date. Thsi would be the security password that will need to be entered each time the machine is booted up.

johnny, does this allow you to set the administrator password or only other/new users?

the administrator can set any account details.
