Angry mac G4 power book

hey guys my friend has the above laptop but has some problems with it here they are:

he has forgotten his password so he cant get into it. now it does not have any info that he still needs so how would one format a laptop with out the mac os cd? also is ther any other os that mac can run other than the mac os?

also how would one access the bios?

i have never worked on a mac before so i know absolute jack about it!
