When installing & configuring a OS X Server 10.4 remotely, when asked for the password to the server, what should you use? What should you use if you have a very old computer? Is case sensitive ?

Use the first 8 digits of the servers serial number.

For an old computer, use 12345678 (this is ONLY in the case of a very old machine or a refurbished machine that does not know its own serial number.)

Yes, it is case-sensitive, and the serial number must be entered all uppercase in order to work.
