Hello all,

I user a server at work and so we require a lot more security on a
windows 200 server. I want to be able to switch between users and the
administrator from the command prompt or at least lace my xp box in and
ou of instal mode from a command line without having to either log out
or switch users from te startmenu. Is this possible? It's the exact
same command as the "SU" command for Linux.

thank you in advance

could achieve the same thing by doing run as and typing in my admin
password.
