There are linux bootdisks floating around the 'net that will let you
reset the admin passwd.  You can then login using that account and
grant yourself any rights you want.  Look for ntpasswd on google.

These disks will only help with Windows Workstations for local
Administrator accounts and Windows Servers which are not Domain
Controllers.

AFAIK you can use these disks to reset the password for directory
recovery mode. From there you should be able to change domain passwords.
