Can't get past initial login (10.04)

I think I just ruined my family's computer! Any help would be greatly appreciated....

The system appears to be accepting my user name password combination, but isn't letting me go any further.

Here goes: after running through the initial installation process for version 10.04, I enter in my user name and password, the screen flashes black for a second, and I get bounced back to the login screen.

I know I am using the correct user name and password, as 1) I just created it in during the installation process (it's very simple, definitely not making a mistake), and 2) When I have tried the wrong user name/password combinations to test, the system catches it immediately and says that this is incorrect info.

Background/possible clues:

I was attempting to replace XP. Rather than partition the disk and install them side by side to be safe, I was an idiot and decided do a complete replace, so I'm basically stuck with this.
