I've had three PowerMac G5's in my department, after being upgraded  
to 10.4.3, that won't accept any username/password combination to log  
in.  Couldn't log in from remote with SSH either.  One of them, after  
being rebooted, started working.

The other two did not.

I tried to start both of them with the Tiger install disc and reset  
the password with no luck.  I booted to single user mode, mounted the  
disk at /, ran /etc/rc to init the system and bring it online, ran  
SystemStarter to start misc system services, then reset the password  
for root.  After reboot I then logged in with the GUI as root and  
reset the user passwords.

The NetInfo database had been hosed on both machines.
