This has been a full day of troubleshooting this one. After downloading the Airport Admin Utility 4.2.5, I was finally able to see the old ABS Dual Ethernet via ethernet cable plugged into the LAN port from a Macbook running 10.5.2. We don't know the password to login into the base station and a soft reset hasn't stripped the password from the base station.
So.. I got ABS into hard reset mode with the middle LED blinking once every second as described in the Apple documentation, and was able to seethe ABS from the Airport Admin Utility. HOWEVER, when I try to configure the ABS, I enter my Admin username and password, am prompted to temporarily change TCP/IP settings for this computer and then "Writing configuration..." comes up.. but a few seconds later I get an error message "An error occurred while writing the configuration."
That's it. No other explanation.
No idea where to go from here.
My network settings are set in Manual mode to the following:
IP: 192.42.249.15
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.42.249.13
Any ideas with this one?

If I understand your post correctly, "when I try to configure the ABS" in the second paragraph refers to clicking the Configure button while trying to reload base station software (i.e., step 16 in Apple's document titled AirPort Base Station (Dual Ethernet) : How to reload software from Mac OS X).
I suggest that in order to reload the base station software, you make sure that AirPort is inactive on your computer and that the manual network settings you described are in the "Show: Built-in Ethernet" part of Network preferences.
Beyond that, I'd recommend re-doing the hard reset, possibly multiple times if it doesn't succeed the first time.
On the other hand, if you successfully reloaded the base station software and are indeed trying to configure the base station's settings, then quit AirPort Admin Utility, restore the computer's Network Ethernet settings to Using DHCP, and reopen AirPort Admin Utility (steps 18-20 of Apple's document).
