hauteshots is on a distinguished road

I am advanced Windows user who has girlfriend with an Imac OS10.3 and I need to get on her computer with my own account to test out some new software for her. As the admin she created me a standard user account and after she logs out and I try to log in and it will not accept my username and password. We have tried several times to change the password and even created a second account and it still denies me access.

Also note (I am able to see her computer on my network and connect to her USB drives using the same username and password that it would allow me to log in with.

This is driving me nuts! Can someone please tell me why the Mac is not allowing me to log in on a new account?

thank you for any help provided!
QUOTE Thanks
