Windows 7: Reset Windows 2000 password?

Reset Windows 2000 password?

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but since it is a question about Win 2k, I thought I should start here. If a forum administrator moves this thread, that's a good thing.
I am trying to help a friend with an old Dell Inspiron 2600 laptop. Garage sale item. The logon password and system passwords are not available.
I've tried several password reset programs, but they won't boot. The machine will however boot to CD.
So, anybody know of a password reset program with bootable .iso that will work on this old machine?

Google "reset w2k password". There are quite a few results, including a review of several options. A quick review of that page shows that most of those programs can be installed to a CD.
