Used iMac Question

My brother works for a moving crew, today found a used iMac that someone had left out that they didnt want anymore. (The crew is really supposed to take it to the surplus place but the head mover said he could have it). So he took the computer home and turned it on and it says he needs a user name and password to start it up. Can anyone help with a way to clear this, and log on to the computer?

If you don't have at least the admin password, you're gonna need an install disc to reset it.

Just buy an OS disk on eBay and re-install. Which one did he find?

Not the newer version with the metal base, its the older one with the white outline around the screen and circular base.

He gets all the new software free from the university so hes gonna do that today.

Unfortunately when he went to the computer lab, the guy gave him Snow Leopard which isnt compatable with the computer so hes gotta go back and get some older versions. Ohh well, everything should be sorted out soon... thanks for the help
