Open Active Directory, find your user account in there, and reset the password. Then, using that account, you can log into the XP system.

If you don't know how to create or modify a user account on the server, you should not be doing that. Have the server admin take care of it.

Smells of homework assignment to me.

You will have sit at the sever, and to log into the server with an administrative account.

then under the Active Directory User Accounts you reset the password for your account.

log out of the server, go to the computer, and log in with your account

I did understand, but I don't think you gave enough info. Are you talking about a domain account or a local account? You talked about a server, domain system, etc... which all point to a domain account, which you reset on the server. If you can't get into an admin account on the server, nor on the PC, you are out of luck unless you get a windows password reset disk.

Why not recover it with windows xp password recovery tool, I recommend Windows Password Seeker. It is really useful and simple.

You need to get whoever is in charge of your domain to handle this. If you don't know where to go to change a user password, you don't want to start digging around on your own. Plus you need to be able to logon as a domain administrator account, which does not look like you have since you have not been able to do this already.

On the domain controller, go into the User Management tool, you can modify the domain user accounts there.

Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers.
