    There's a tech note you can get from the Apple web site that outlines
    the steps (there are about 30, that's THIRTY). In short, you have to
    create a new user, move user files from the old user to the new user
    home directory, change official ownership of the files. It's not
    something you undertake casually, and it's easy to mess up along the
    way, especially if you have any files you care about stored outside your
    Doents folder.
