Admin Password

How can I change an Administrator password on an NT/2000/XP PC over a Novell network where the users are power users and admin rights are required to change or create account details.

You can't. Power Users have nearly as permissive rights as administrators, but only on the local machine. A Domain Administrator has rights to change passwords on machines in the domain, and all domain Admins are automatically Power Users on all machines in the domain. Changing passwords over a network (ie, on another machine) can only be accomplished by a domain admin.
