Glad you have your system back up and running! :)

I have already tried this and I received the same results as I did
without the line (Auth failure).

Your previous message stated that:

How do I load my original passwords into this hidden system file?  I
added the password for doug using the following command:

pg_passwd /var/postgres/passwd

<Enter User Name> Doug
<Enter User Password> db

I did not see anything in the docs about setting passwords into the
system table.  Is there a different way to enter passwords now for
postgres access?  The system password for user 'doug' is not 'db' like I
set it in the pg_passwd command.
