you can look at this page:

it has steps for RT4 (be sure to use the RT4 way, not the 3.8 way, i believe the password encryption was changed in there somewhere).

There is also steps to check to see if the "root" account was disabled, and how to enable it if it was.

yes, the above link will get you there. you can "un-disable" a user, if it was disabled, and reset the password to something you know. 

from the first entry in the logs, it looks like the passwords are still stored in the "pre-change-to-md5" format (from back in 3.8 i believe). there was some code in there to allow people to use either, but if they changed their password, it would be stored in the new format. it could be that those users you are trying to login with had never changed their passwords since then? (it is mentioned at least here: http://www.bestpractical.com/docs/rt/4.2/UPGRADING-3.8.html )

I hope this helps...
