I am trying to do a password test on our network.  It's been about 6 years since I last did it and it on was a Windows NT system.  I am now using Windows XP.  I want to use Cain and Abel to gain the hashes from the sam file.  Couple things on that.  Each time I type in where I think the location of the sam file is, I get an error when I try to run it.

My question is:  Does anyone know how to use Cain and Abel and how I get the hashes from the Sam File?  I have the Admin rights, so I am not looking for the hack side of things but a real deal how it's done.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
