    Awhile back i found a linux boot cd that resets the password for any user not on a domain. here is the link for it, i never leave home without it now.

    This should get your administrator password back. Then you can try to recovery console or a repair.

    Good Luck.

      eyeguyohio, welcome to the site, please take the time to familiarise yourself with the forum rules that are clearly posted at the top of each forum along with the instruction to read them before posting. Your question does not seem to have anything to do with Windows Server - there is a forum specifically for questions related to Windows XP (shared with Windows 2000).

      Please also choose a more descriptive title for your threads in future - "hosed?" tells people nothing about your problem.
