There is a program out there that lets you boot off a floppy and access an NTFS partition. No idea what it is called.

However, you should be able to just use an appropriate user name and password to get to it. Would help if the pasword is the same as it was before.

Fun, isn't it?

Dont know about XP but if you logon to NT4 as administrator the world is your oyster.

Log on as a member of the Administrator's group and take ownership of the files (if you want) and change the permissions accordingly...
