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.

Windows password reset
Hey, first of all, before you all get angry with me for not using the search: it is NOT about resetting the account password, it's about the password which I put on when I bought the laptop while it asked about the settings and stuff. As far as I understand it has nothing to do with the user...
