I've never had logon problems or losing passwords, but I'll keep that url in mind.

I've never had password problems either, but I have had a lot of fellow employees who bring their home computers to me to recover their administrator passwords which was either set by some repair center who charged them too much a couple of months ago or they last used it when they installed a game half a year back or something like that...  I keep the url in mind for them...

Hello all,
             I am using bootable disk given on http://home.eunet.no/Epnordahl/ntpasswd/bd040818.zip. I created and try to boot from it and it starts SYSLINUX why???? Is the utility written in linux???
what path should be given by me for regristry files?

Another similar problem i face with another pc in my Computer LAB which have 3 OS Win98 + winXP with FAT32 Filesystem + RH9 linux. This pc also needs to recover admin password for XP. These problems are faced by me because those pcs are left unused after they came in LAB with installation from vendor and now need to use it.
       I again use bootable disk and first step in recovery says no NTFS partition and same require regitry path in step 2 here also.
help.
