    Can't log into the server with a local account? network account? Can't login to a client machine bound to the server?

    More details needed.

    Reboot from DVD. Run Disk Utility and verify the HD.

    If the HD verifies OK, then read "Resetting the original administrator account password" in this article:

    If the HD doesn't verify OK, then it probably has some damage that killed the account login info. You could try repairing the disk, but that may not recover the damaged data.
