Hi, have you tried reintalling the OS, or at least the big combo update?
Repair Permissions afterwords, reboot.
1058 Combo Update, 10.5.8...

Thanks for replying, I hadn't tried this. I am a bit naive about the terminology, I just update using my alternate user on the computer and then try to access the sparsebundle?

That's what I'd try, but it doesn't sound good so far.

Have you tried booting from your Install Disc & repairing the whole drive yet?
1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
*Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
3. Click the First Aid tab.
4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
5. Click Repair Disk, (not Repair Permissions). Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
