From within Win2000, Ctrl-Alt-Del and use the Change Password button.

See if you can find the *.pwl file in Win2000 from the Win98 install. Delete the username.pwl file.

Then boot From within Win98, with your new password.

Sorry, (last paragraph) "Then boot to win98 with your new password."

If you cannot find any pwl files from within Win2000, then boot into Win98 with the old password and find and delete username.pwl file, then reboot and login to Win98 with your new password.
