I have recently taken over as Technology Admin. and I needed to change the passwords which did this morning.  I thought I was careful and was successful in getting them changed.  This afternoon I attempt to log onto the server and it's telling me the password is incorrect.  Anyway...I have been reading on this website for other fixes but I was thinking one could use the Windows 2000 Server disk to change a password if forgot?  If so, please help me.  
Desperate again!!!

Actually, I was able to get into the server through another administrative user.  But...I did check out the link you sent and greatly appreciate your help.
