Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After being here over a year.. I notice some questions never go solved or answered. If you react like that, it might never go answered. Most likely no one who has been on the boards since you posted knows the exact answer, so give it time and someone might be of some help.
see, there you go.. someone replied as i typed my response.
Hey I had same issue with Nt 4 couple of months ago and somewhere on google i found one site which had a software with which you can create bootable floppy and boot with it and change the administrator password. At that time they were supporting 2000 too. You may wanna search on that
i searched for it and i found an excellent site called www.nttoolbox.com On that site there was a download to make a bootable floppy. It said it worked on nt and win2000. I emailed them and asked if it would work on XP and they said they hadnt tested it yet.
