        I don't believe that any Mac OS version prior to 9.0 came
with an integrated password system. Obviously, the SE/30 isn't
running OS 9.0 since it is a 68k Mac and support for the non-PPC
machines was dropped a number of revisions back. When you booted the
SE/30 with the shift-key held down, did it show you on the splash
screen 'Extensions Off' or did it seemingly boot normally, showing
the icons along the bottom as it booted?
