        Need a little help here,
        I have two hard disks operating on one computer motherboard, one at a time
        of course. One has XP Pro and the other OS is Windows 2000 Pro. I do
        different things on them. There are times that I want to work on the other
        HD, so I shut one down go into the bios as it reboots and change which one
        opens first. Worked fine for two - three years everything every good. Last
        week I opened windows 2k pro and it asked for a username and password and I
        cannot get past it. I never had either before, it just opened when I booted
        it up. Both the motherboard has no wireless but it does have a connection
        to the modem so that it can get online. Now I do have a wireless modem but
        it has or had a very strong Password, long and numbers here and there. This
        computer has a wired connection to the modem. It is wireless because I have
        a notebook that I work one the den far from the computer area. The notebook
        is wireless. Can anyone get into the notebook without going through the
        modem, if so how do I protect it so people cannot get into it??

        Back to the main problem, how do I get into the W2k OS now that is password
        protected and I do not have the password. I can get into part of it of it
        through the XP hard drive. I went into the bios and changed password
        protect to no password, but it did not change anything. Any Ideas???
