Sorry, but this problem statement is incredibly non-specific, and not at all conducive to any reasoned diagnosis. Here is what I can offer:
Be aware that certain models of eMac were built with a specific lot of faulty Taiwanese capacitors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague), and with age may begin to exhibit problems with startup and/or faulty video. The extended warranty on this problem has already expired. If the tops of the capacitors visible inside the access door on the bottom of your eMac are bulged or leaking similar to those in this image:

your only recourse is to look for a replacement for your eMac.

Have apple eMac forgot user password can you help


You need to start up from the system cd for the eMac then use 'Password Utility' to change the password.
Alternatively, if you are transferring the files to another Mac, you can start up the eMac in 'Target Disk' mode by holding down the 'T' key during start-up until a Firewire symbol appears on the screen. The computer can then be connected to another Mac which will see the eMac as an external HD.

I bought a eMac from the dep of Education and I am unable to get into it because i don't have the username or password


You should format the internal hard disk and install a clean and fresh version of Mac-OS anyways and create a new user-account. If there is no install-disc included, try calling Apple, tell them your eMac's serial number (All eMac's have their serial numbers printed inside the disc drive door), and ask them if they have any replacement install discs for your model of eMac. Check out the Apple eMac support page or the Apple eMac support forum for more informations.

I have an eMac and would wireless USB adapter to work


It depends on which eMac you have. The 1/1.25 Ghz and the 1.42 ghz models have USB 2.0 so either adapter will work. The slower speed eMacs only had USB 1.1 and will not work for those types of adapters. The 700/800Mhz models will use the original AirPort card while the rest of the eMacs use the Airport Extreme cards.

After starting my emac a screen comes up asking me to log in above it says darwin/bsd (user-s-emac-2.local) (console)


Sounds like some of your system files may have been corrupted. Restart your computer with you OS disc, and when it launches, go to the top menu and look for "Disk Utilitiy". Launch and see if you can repair the files that way. If not you may have to reinstall the system software. If so, choose the option that won't erase your info on your drive.
Last resort is to wipe the drive clean and reinstall the OS fresh, but this will erase everything.
Before erasing everything, if you have access to a second mac, you can connect the emac to the other mac via a firewire cable, turn on your emac in hard drive mode by starting it while holding down the "T" key. You'll get a firewire icon on the screen. Then turn on the second mac... you can off load any files to the second mac and then reinstall the OS via the OS discs.
Best of success.

EMac stuck on loading screen


Well i don't know of a fix for the issue u have, but i do have a tip and you might be able to fix the issue you have this way as well. But if you plan on transfering files from one mac to another esp. if one is either an older mac or a portable. you would always want to make one or the other a target disk instead of two stand alone mac's.
Why, because your eMac's older and the data transfer might be failing or can't process the data fast enough to get broken down to bits to be put back on the other end thru the cat5 line. But to transfer files of over 1 GB i would recommend you start the iBook in target disk mode. But since your eMac is the one with some issues put the eMac as the target.
To connect two mac using TDM (Target Disk Mode) you will need to get either a 6-pin IEEE to 6-pin IEEE firewire 800 cable, a 6-pin IEEE to 9-pin IEEE firewire 800 cable, or a 9-pin IEEE to 9-pin IEEE (if your eMac has a 9-pin port) firewire 800 cable.
Then you connect the cable to one of the eMac's 6 or 9 pin ports and the other end to one of the iBooks firewire 800 ports. (the iBook has both the 6 pin a48d559.gif and the 9 pin. 24a3000.gif800 ports) To start up as the target disk you press and hold T immediately after pressing the power on button. once you see the firewire symbol bounce around the screen you can let go. Now its like connecting to a external hard drive.
