What changes did you make to the hostconfig? (can you reference the Apple URL that recommended this?)

If you're trying to type the admin password in response to the 'sudo' command, it's asking for your password not the admin password.

If you still have access to a user account that's in the admin group, try this: sudo -s (enter YOUR password) cp /etc/hostconfig /etc/hostconfig.bak cat << DONE > /etc/hostconfig HOSTNAME=-AUTOMATIC- ROUTER=-AUTOMATIC- AUTOMOUNT=-YES- DONE sync shutdown -r now
