I say "I log into the machine", just like I would say "I logged into the
machine" (rather than "loginned to the machine" ;)).
I agree with Sridhar, I think we should use separate words (e.g. "log in")
for verbs, but for nouns, either hyphenated versions (e.g. "log-in") or run
together words (e.g. "login").
