Logged on as 'Administrator' via Safe Mode ? ...

That is what you have to do.

Not log onto XP Pro with an ID that has Administrator's rights.

Press F8 at power-up and select 'Safe Mode with Networking' as your boot option.

I'm confused

When you installed XP Pro it asked you for the Administrator password. What did you type? Twice you typed it.
Put administrator in the username box and the password that you typed in during install.
You, of course, need to spell everything correctly.
