Foreign Powerbook G4 Reset

by sheeep / June 18, 2005 2:32 PM PDT

I was wondering if someone can help me with reseting my Powerbook to it's factory conditions. This is my first Mac; the keyboard, and the OS X is in Japanese, so I really have no idea what I'm doing. Is there a way to change the OS to English, or do I need to go buy an english version? There's not really any information I need on the laptop, so I don't need to deal with making a backup of the HD or anything. I'd really appreciate it if someone could give me some step by step instructions. Thank in advance :o)
