I just got a server to migrate and I need to have the sa password.  The problem is that the current owners of the server have no clue what it is.  I do however have administrative access to the box.  Does anyone know of ways to either get the sa password, reset it, or assign permisssions to an existing user?  In the end I need a user to have sysadmin priveliges.
