You need to use pwdump3 on a DC that you have admin privs on, copying the file to your local drive.  Then import that 
file into LC4 - LC4 will use it to do the audit.  Then you can export the resulting lcs file to a text file which you 
can import into Excel to get statistics.

Subject: Syskey on Win2k

On Windows 2000, Syskey is enabled by default, can I copy the .sam file from
\winnt\system32 after booting from bootdisk and then running LC4 or do I
need to run something else first. Just wondering since I know Syskey is
supposed to be 128 encryption.
