a quick look with google: 'xp passwords' showed a couple of commercial password crackers:

which might help.

There is a reference to a Microsoft article, which says that XP passwords are not restored when System Restore is used. Can you use a recovery floppy to run System Restore? That might solve the problem.

When you get it back, you WILL set an Adminstrator password, and keep it safe and secret, won't you?
