Sounds like you locked down the root user according to the last step
in the 0.3 instructions.

Perhaps you did not lock down the olpc user, try logging in with user
olpc, and if you get a prompt, type su to become root, then change the
password for root using the command passwd.

You might instead boot Tiny Core Linux from a USB drive and use the
shell to change the password instead.

If you truly can't get into the system, start way back from 13.1.0

0.4 might be a better idea at this stage.
