Is there some kind of admin login backdoor??

I have to ask what the circumstances are because that information in any forum would attract the wrong type of folks?

Are you trying to regain control of a pc that a son or daughter has mistakenly lost the pw to or what?

If they are connected to a domain, you can use one of the domain admin's logons to force the change of the password (goto control panel/users & passwords, select the local administrator, and click "set password")

Other than that, guess... I've done that a few times, and I've always been able to recover it... just try different keys around the password keys.. you probably just missed one key)

...we just installed so nothing is configured...

Just re-install win2k. You can then set a new admin password. Since you just installed and nothing isn't configured, this should not be much work.
