Okay, here goes...To acess the Adminastrator account on Win XP Pro, do the following.

1) turn on the computer, etc.
2) When you get to the logon screen, press control, alt and tap delete twice. This will bring you to the Win 2000 logon screen.
3) at the username prompt, type Administrator, then type the password that you entered at the time of installation.
