Lost administrator password for Windows 2003 SBS

I am doing work for an organization where the main IT person died.   Unfortunately, the password wasn't given to anyone else.  

I need to find a way to recover or reset the administrator password on a Windows 2003 Small Business Server.    Any suggestions?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. Purchase Active password changer from http://www.password-changer.com and try to recover password.
2. Search google for Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset, burn CD, boot from CD and reset password using locksmith tool.
3. Boot with SBS 2003 CD and choose repair, while repairing setup will ask you for Administrator password, set administrative password and complete the repair.
