Get yourself a copy of Knoppix and boot off the CD once you have the system running go into the Admin area and delete any passwords just set them to a blank space and then reboot the computer and remove the copy of Knoppix and you should be OK from there as far as the passwords go.

or try the following links:

There is alot ways to bypass the login for XP, most require you to change the password for the user/admin but if want to get full access. You need to boot into a Linux CD. The correct version will let you change and save the password.

Search or download a copy of Winternals admin CD boot up with that cd and it will give the option to change any password on the pc.
