Boot off a floppy. Change directory to c:\Windows\System32\Config. Copy the 2 sam files to a floppy and then delete them off your hdd. Reboot your machine to the normal OS. Your admin. pw will now be blank. Create a local account with admin rights. Boot your machine again off the floppy and copy the 2 sam files that is on the floppy back to the config directory. Boot back to your OS and log on with your new created account. You can now reset admin pw if you like.
