Big problem here: I accidently deleted a folder called "private" while i was messing with some network stuff with "show invisible folders" enabled in the finder. After I deleted the folder, my password no longer worked to authenticate any programs. I restarted my machine and now it only boots into a command line prompt (black screen, white text) and says something like, "no mastr passwrd" I'm guessing I deleted the user root password and OSX can't get past the prompt. Is there a way to reset my password from this prompt, or am I doomed to a complete reinstall? I tried booting from the install cd and resetting the password from there, but it doesn't recognize my disk as having osx installed on it. Oddly, it does allow me to select my HD as a startup disk, and shows it has OSX 10.3.9 installed. Here's my specs: iBook 700mhz G3 640 mb ram OSX 10.3.9 Thanks guys!
