I recently ran into a login problem with Panther on a friend's iMac. I can enter the password to login, but once it has accepted the password, the login screen just sits there and spins and does not actually login. I have tried to repair permissions from the start up cd but that doesn't work and I have also reset the passwords, including system administrator but to no avail either. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this or at the very least retrieve some information before re-install, please let me know. Thanks!
