Poppin' boxes from console.

Had to crack a Win2k box this afternoon as it was "appropriated" and no one knew the Administrator password.

I used Austrumi, which in turn uses (I think) ntpasswd to do the actual password changing.

I'm sure I've made posts similiar to this in the past, but I never actually bothered doing any of this (generally speaking, any workstations we would have gotten from elsewhere are riddled with viruses, trojans, and random stupid crap users install on machines, so it's easier to just reinstall most of the time).

Anyway, it worked well.
