Mac help!

Jherek has a used PowerBook that he got from a friend. He recently renamed the user account on it and has subsequently been unable to access darn near everything on the machine. He says:

It seems that there's this "little bug" in the OS.
When you rename your user account (as I did because I got tired of seeing
Alex's name), the computer regards it as a new account and loses the ability to
map to said account. So all the preferences, configurations, and files are
there... somewhere... but they can't be found.

Any ideas from folk who speak Mac?
