I have a similar problem. Tiger on G4 15" Firewire PowerBook, and 250Gb Lacie external drive. I am the only user, and have an admin password required to boot (and to wake from sleep). I made a bootable clone of the internal drive onto Lacie (using Carbon Copy Cloner), and when I restart with Lacie selected as start up disk all goes smoothly until the password screen: it does not accept my password.
I guess something is linking the password to the disk the system is sitting on... but how can I get around this?
