    It happened to me as well on my mbp (not unibody). script to mod .kext files did not complete and upon restart I had no trackpad or keyboard and couldn't use external devices as well!! Due to this could not sign into my account to fix the problem. I simply took out the hdd and attached it to another mac n downloaded the 10.5.6 update and installed it on my hdd attached via usb. Just told installer the target drive was usb n when done reinstalled my hdd and everything was back to normal!
