Accessing files on 2nd Hard Drive from another system

I have a hard drive with a viable OS on it from another computer.  The old computer died and I've installed the HD into a second -- newer computer as a slave drive.  Both systems are XP Home.  I have access to the files on both drives---Except----Certain users have passwords on both drives.  I can't access the files on the old hard drive where the user had a password.  How do get access to the password protected user names on the older hard drive???
