Administrator Account Deleted

When I was setting up the users on a computer, I accidently deleted the Administrator account.  Is there any way I can get it back without re-installing Windows 2000?

Let me be a little more specific.  It shows the administrator account, but I can't log on with it.  I also tried to change the password and it says access is denied.
