Cannot log on as or open users?

I cannot open or log on 2 users on my Mac. I have a dual 2.5 gig G5 running Panther 10.3.8. The locked/unavailable user folders have a red minus - sign next to them. I am able to log on as administater, but cannot open these foldres? Help please

You need to login as the user (name and password), for who's Home Folder you are trying to access. Even admin users do not have access to other users home folders (except for their Public and Sites folders).

Hi Tony,

When I try to log on as one of the blocked users I get the folowing messege -The folder "name of folder" could not be opened because you do not have sufficient acess privleges.

Repair your permissions using Disk Utility.

Well, I repaired the system hard drive permissions and rebooted, but no luck so far. Any other ideas?

Robert
