password recovery help?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.setup (More info?)

How can I get my password to get into Win2000 on my old work Dell latitude
PII PC?

I dont know admin password for Win2000 laptop and now my personnel password
doesnt work any longer either.

I DO NOT have any Win2000 CDs to create a boot disk.

I did my best Google to find a solution and found a admin password solution
with this:
http://www.lostpassword.com/windows-xp-2000-nt.htm

Unfortunately it requires a boot disk which I need the Win2000 install disk
to create...again I have no disks.

If I can get it running, laptop will be fine for me to use a Backup server
to drive external HD on my home LAN. I dont want to spend $200 for XP OS
for this when Dell Latitude PII is pretty worthless, and I can buy a brand
new PC P4 from Dell for about 150 more. Also I dont want to go the steep
learning curve to put Linux on it.

Can I create a win2000 boot disk with some download or something?

Any help appreciated.
Thank you

    I have two solutions:
    1.Delete file "sam" in directory "window" in system partition on another
    computer
    2.Use the bug that Microsoft had patched for windows2000 professional,You
    computer should not intall service pack2 first.
