Cannot login with default admin password

I did a Alfresco 1.4.0 Community Install on a Windows XP SP2 machine.
The install went smoothly.
I also configured it to use an Oracle database (details below).

The problem I have now is that when I try to login into Alfresco with admin/admin I just keep getting message Unable to login - unknown username and password.

I checked the Oracle database's alf_node_properties table and verified that the hashed password is indeed 209c6174da490caeb422f3fa5a7ae634 – which corresponds to the hashed value of 'admin'.

I checked the Tomcat logs and there are no errors spit out.

Please help.  Thanks in advance.

Oracle configuration–
Edit the file C:\Alfresco ECMS\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\repository.properties and set the following
db.driver=oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver
db.name=alfresco
db.url=jdbc:oracle:thin:@10.21.1.146:1521:doc00
db.username=alfresco_prd
db.password=<password>

Edit the file C:\Alfresco ECMS\tomcat\webapps\alfresco\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\domain\hibernate-cfg.properties and set the following
hibernate.dialect=org.hibernate.dialect.OracleDialect

Edit the file C:\Alfresco ECMS\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\extension\custom-db-connection.properties and set the following
db.driver=oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver
db.url=jdbc:oracle:thin:@10.21.1.146:1521:doc00

Edit the file C:\Alfresco ECMS\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\extension\custom-hibernate-dialect.properties and set the following
hibernate.dialect=org.hibernate.dialect.OracleDialect

Copy the Oracle 10g r2 classes12.jar file into C:\Alfresco ECMS\tomcat\common\lib
