So I installed Leopard about 2 weeks ago and I found it nice and didn't have one issue... until now. I have not used the computer for about 2 days and its been off. It booted up to the login screen, but alas I cannot log in. I can't log in to ANY user, not even root. And further more the reset password thing on the DVD will not work. I even tried repair permissions from another mac. Well now I am backing up in target disk mode to reinstall. I think I am going to stick to Leopard though, although I have no idea why, there isn't even classic in leopard. Apple has disappointed me :'(
This is a fairly common issue actually. I first saw it in Tiger Server, but Leopard client does it on occasion too. Don't know of a quick fix I'm afraid. As for Classic, it really is very old nowadays. There are very few professionals who still use it, and while you might argue that windows has better backwards compatibility, its pro users keep their OS longer because of the high cost of upgrading. Mac OS has always been reasonably priced in comparison.
