    In NT the password file can be found as:
    \\WINNT\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SAM Main password file
    \\WINNT\REPAIR Backup password file

    Note that the backup file is often left unupdated since installation; it would therefore have only Administrator and Guest entries. Administrator should be all you need, provided the password was not changed at some later date.
