I have a Compaq 4770 Presario with a 3.8 gb hardrive and 32 mb of RAM. I want to change WIN98 to NT 4.0.  After installing NT 4.0, I tried to log in but NT does not accept my password.  Is there something in COMPAQ presario that won't accept NT 4.0 or did I not install NT properly.  Help!

During the install process, the installer prompted you for the administrator password to be set.  You typed in a password twice or the setup would not have continued.  If you cannot remember what you typed, you will have to go back and re-install.
