What is the output of:
ls -l /etc/ptmp
Have you tried reconstructing the database as suggested by others? Try running:
pwd_mkdb /etc/master.passwd
If there is something wrong with it, or the file is missing, check in /var/backups/ for a backup of it.
The best way to learn UNIX is to play with it, and the harder you play, the more you learn.
If you play hard enough, you'll break something for sure, and having to fix a badly broken system is arguably the fastest way of all to learn. -Michael Lucas, AbsoluteBSD
