ok, using 9.1...

My account is the owner account...

My User is "graphics85" (changed to protect my identity)
my password is "wack" (like it really is)

but I want it to be "mac"... how can I change it?

I tried to do it in Users and Groups but it didn't work...

suggestions?

If not Users and Groups, try Multiple Users control panel.

I forgot to add (obviously), that you need to be logged into the main account to do this...
