I just installed XP Pro and it will not accept my password

I installed XP Pro yesterday on a p4 2.0 Dell with 512 memory.  I orginally had Win 2000 on the machine.  I performed the microsoft handware compatability test and all components are XP qualified.

There is no issue about available HD capacity.

Now, when I try to login, XP will not accept my password.  It is a very simple password and there is no issue about keyboard or typo errors.  Can anyone help?

Many thanks

Using Win2K password? NetWorking password?

Try reInstalling, boot CD, delete all partitions, create them and format and continue install. Add a couple IDs and passwords for backup & safety prior to reboot. Do not try upgrade one to other. Boot to desktop, not to domain.
