Black Cinema Display on start up with Power Mac G5


I think I did a major boo boo... i was cleaning out some system preferences,
( I was on hold with the cable company and trying to multi-task), and i trashed a private folder and some other folder i can't remember, anyways here is the message on the black screen after start up.

/etc/master.passwd: No such file or directory

This is what I have done,

1. tried to restart with imac OSx disc 1

2. tried to restart with Tiger 10.4 OSx

3. tried pram after taking out kingston 2mg ram and leaving stock apple ram.

I have a apple care appointment on thursday, but can't wait that long...

Any Thoughts!
