Google up "Rainbow Tables"

Then stop using anything else.

If you are looking for OpenSource alternatives you should check:

Cain & Abel could be useful for your needs,  (http://www.oxid.it/) , it 
has a complete suite of cracking tools.
Lepton's Crack  (http://www.nestonline.com/lcrack/) it's very good, and 
it support regular expressions.
John The Ripper (http://www.openwall.com/john)

And for remote password cracking you could use:
Hydra    http://www.thc.org/thc-hydra/

Hope it helps

I've used Internet Security Scanner from ISS and really like it's 
ability to pull users from NT domains and test common passwords, such 
as username=password, password=password, etc.

I've considered purchasing the consultant version of l0phtcrack LC5.

Has anyone used LC5 and can anyone compare it to ISS?  Also are there 
any OpenSource tools that can do these sorts of checks?
