This sounds like you:

NDS is very secure and if you cannot rember your password i am afraid you have to call Novell and pay for support.

This link claims to have the nlm you are talking about:

Getting the context for the admin is critical or you will get errors.
Good Luck.

There used to be a program called burgler that would extr5act a Netware 4 admin password. I don;t know if it works on NW5 or if it is still available.

Uhh..you really shouldn't be using the admin account all that often. You should create admin equivalent accounts and use those instead. If you had admin equivalent account, you could have changed the root admin password without a problem. Security should be your top priority, not convenience or simplicity.
