Can't Log In Pickle

I recently posted this with the wrong title. It's a login problem not a boot problem.

I am in a spot and I have no idea what to do. I have an old Macbook Pro that I was resuscitating for various reasons (media center.) Anyway it was Tiger and I just loaded Leopard (which is the cutoff -- it can't run Snow Leopard.) Problem is after loading Leopard I get this message at login:

"Your FileVault-protected home folder did not open and needs to be repaired.
Click OK to repair the folder and continue logging in.
Click Cancel Login to log in as a different user."

But -- there are no other users and the only message that follows this after entering my password is:

"You are unable to log into the filevault at this time."

I found a fix that involved having the OS disk in to boot from -- but the computer will not boot from it and just takes me tot his screen.

I launched it in TARGET MODE. In target mode I copied the sparse file over to my Snow Leopard computer. And now I just want to get the Leopard computer working (no longer fearing the loss of anything on the computer because I copied everything over.)

Since I can't get it to boot from the DVD or launch into terminal -- Is there anything I can do in Target Mode to fix this? I would reformat but I don;t know how to do that in Target Mode (I did read how to do it if I was formatting FROM the target but not to it.
