Your keychain is located at:

If you're getting password errors for your Admin account, boot from the Leopard installer disc and choose "Reset Password" from the Utilities menu. Follow the prompts to re-enter your Admin account password. You will likely get prompts initially after restarting for your passwords as Keychain rebuilds its list.

In Preferences there is an option called Reset my Keychain. Click that and it will reset your keychain and the password errors should go away.
