Change forgotten Windows passwords with Knoppix

I needed access to the XP Recovery Console on a client’s computer. There was a password set for the Administrator account, but they only knew the password to their own. ERD Commander requires the computer successfully booting into Windows after changing (which this computer would not do), Ophcrack said all LM Hashes were empty, and the computer had no floppy drive to use an NT Crack bootable disk. I knew there had to be another way, and I found it with Knoppix and chntpw.
