    A friend of mine has a 12" pb 867mhz that's hard drive is dead. "Beyond repair" -- I booted off a Tiger disc.

    But when I try to boot off a firewire external drive with Tiger on the drive, the grey screen stops loading and in black in the top it reads:

    /etc/master.passwd: No such file or directory
    /etc/master.passwd: No such file or directory
    sh-2.05a#

    and the screen freezes. Any ideas?
