Password Reset-unable to Login As User


I recently reset my coworker's password (as she is using a laptop left by a previous employee). I reset using the MAC OS X 10.3.2 installer Disc, and going to "Reset Password". After doing so, when I rebooted, I lost the user (my coworker) and was unable to access her desktop. However, I see that when I log in as the Administrator, her desktop and Username appear on the hardrive, meaning it is there, just cant access it. Any ideas how to get to her old desktop, if this issue makes any sense?? It doesnt list her as a user anymore on System preferences, only lists System Administrator..
