Thanks for the replies, guys.
I followed ijack's suggestion and it worked (heh, feel kind of dumb for not knowing how to do that). Now my only problem is going to be restoring ownership to my father... but I assume it'll be the exact same process.
Many thanks for the help.
Edit: Had I a little more time I would have liked to try hang-the-9's idea, but... simplicity had to come first.
