I know there's another question like this already posted, but there's another problem. I lost my admin password, but I don't have my XP cd anymore, nor do I have a floppy. Is there ANY other way to recover it???

Yes there are several Password Crackers that you can use most likely one of these will be your best option

If none of these suit your needs you can do a simple Goggle search for something that works for you. Personally I don't know how well any of these work as I use Knoppix to remove any Windows passwords and get into the Admin accounts but it's not the easiest thing to do and defiantly not for beginners to Linux.

Boot in Safe Mode and create another admin. Or just change the pass to something that you will remember long enough to reboot and log in.

Incidentally, this was the fix that MS gave me once for XP Pro. Oddly, it worked.

This is what I use..a little linux familiarity helps though. The guid on page is good too.
Download and caopy to floppy or burn to disk ona friends computer, print out instructions. FYI remember to BLANK the admin apssword not reset it. The reset function on this program is poor, but blanking has never failed me.
