Now, I did find this post via google--http://www.macosx.com/content/faq.php/q2472/Tiger-Terminal-App-Wont-Start.html
But it does not tell a *NIX neophite how to reset the terminal. I have created the second/new admind account and played with a few things in Directory Access and Netinfo Manager. But all adjustments have failed. Any help would be appreciated. This is my lab image and I just found out about it, yesterday. The image begins distribution next week. It would suck having this error be distributed on campus to all my lab and classroom Macs (about 150).
