windows 2000 admin vs user account?

Hi I am a new windows 2000 user. Someone told me that it is suggested that I create a normal user account for daily use of the computer unless I have to change system's config or do major changes to the computer's setup, in that case I should log on using my administrator account. Otherwise I should set my windows 2000 machine to logon automatically using a normal user account this way my family can use the computer too. My question is, there are two user account, the standard user and restricted user account, which one should i create ??? second question... what are the consequences of NOT setting a password for this account? is it recommended that I set a password for it?

Having a admin password set is good that way you know who is making the changes on your machine if you are the only one with the password. It is better that you create a account for your family that is a power user at the most that way they can install certain softwares use all web services, and word processing
