You could storm the castle by night and recapture the "Admin".   They
probably have him locked in the North tower.

? Do you mean you forgot the Admin password and need back into the box?

Other than use the WinXP installation disc, is there another way to
re-capture Admin privileges on a machine that was previously given a
password for the Admin account?
