I am migrating to a new iMac. I am trying to merge users from two computers. I used migration assistant to merge all the data from my G4 PB, which went fine. Next, I ran migration assistant and connected to our G4iMac, to try to migrate my kids and my wife, so at the end we would all be on this new machine. I just migrated the users, and it went fine for my kids, but my wife was now listed as a user group, not a user. When I tried to do it again, OSX wanted a new short name. I deleted my wife's "group" from the user list, but when I try to add her as a new user, or use Migration assistant again, she is still listed.

Is there anything I can do to make the mac recognize her as a user and not a user group?
Intel imac and powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
