    So long story short.. Had a few problems. Reinstalled OS/X from DVD.
    couldn't log in. Per some instructions I found, deleted
    /var/db.applesetupdone. Rebooted, the machine got to Configuring your
    internet connection, and no matter what I do, it locked. Tried every
    choice.

    So now, I created a blank /var/db/.applesetupdone. Cannot log in. Boot
    into setup on DVD, go to Reset Password, it shows I have no users.

    So I can get into shell via the setup DVD, can I create a user there?

    Thanks.
