Frank, that's OS X. If you can find the install disks, it probably would not hurt to format the drive so you know what you have. The install routine may offer that as an option. If not, there should be a "Disk Utility" program hanging off the menu.

Check the support section of apple.com and see if they tell you how to reset the password.

Also, that's not an Intel machine. Apple has moved their code to Intel. The latest OS release abandoned the code translator that allowed some programs written for the Motorola platform to run on the Intels.
