Using smart cards with Windows 2000/XP is a two-fold problem.

First, you need to have the card manufacturer's Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) installed. For Windows 2000/XP, the Schlumberger and Gemplus CSPs are installed and using a "Win2K Compatible" card from either of these vendors does not require the installation of additional software.

The second part to the involves getting a certificate in the correct format onto the card. Assuming you are refering to PKINIT, you will need to have a card with only a single certificate that follows Microsoft's "Smart Card Logon" profile. Additionally, you will need to do some configuration on the Active Directory side to make it work.

Microsoft summerizes the process in the following Knowledge Base article:

How to Recover Windows 2000 Password


Forgot administrator password on a system running Windows 2000 can be problematic when the administrator to perform maintenance. There is a trick that allows a computer user to reset his password, if you forgot. The process to recover a password in Windows 2003 and XP is different from the process used for Windows NT and Windows 2000.
Step 1. Insert the installation CD of Windows 2000 / DVD into the drive of the computer and then restart the computer.
Step 2. Select the destination directory for the alternative Windows operating system when the program asks you to do. This directory is not the same as the default installation of Windows. This is the computer is a dual-boot system.
Step 3. When the computer restarts, select the alternate Windows installation from the dual-boot menu.
Step 4. Find the logon.scr file. It should be located in the %systemroot%\System32 folder of the Windows folder.
Step 5. Rename logon.scr and move it into the C: folder of the hard drive. You can choose to move it to a different directory. The important thing is to remember where the file gets copied.
Step 6. Find cmd.exe and make a copy of it in the %systemroot%\System32 folder. Move this file to the C: folder of your hard drive.
Step 7. Right-click on the original cmd.exe file and select "Rename." Delete the cmd.exe text and replace it with logon.scr.
Step 8. Restart the computer and start Windows installation. Do not touch the computer until the start of the screensaver. Since the screen saver file, get the default is replaced with the file cmd.exe, then a command prompt instead of the screen saver.
Step 9. At this prompt type: net user administrator <password>
Step 10. Delete logon.scr from the %systemroot%\system32 folder.
Step 11. Issue the following commands from the command prompt:
copy c:\logon.scr c:\windows\%systemroot\system32
copy c:\cmd.exe c:\windows\%systemroot\system 32
Step 12. Restart the computer in the original. From here you can remove the additional installation if desired. If the administrator installation alternatives are on a different drive or partition to reformat the hard disk or partition is the easiest way to achieve this goal.

How to enable the NUM LOCK key for the logon screen


The status of the NUM LOCK key is specific for each user, and it is disabled by default. If you want the NUM LOCK key enabled for use before a user presses CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on (the logon desktop), you need to edit the registry. To enable NUM LOCK for the Logon desktop (shown when no user is logged on), use the steps below:
  • Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following location:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard
  • Double-click the value InitialKeyboardIndicators
  • Set the value-data from 0 to 2
  • Close Regedit
To undo the above, change the InitialKeyboardIndicators value back to 0

My power glitched, now when i try to log in to windows my password isn't recognized. i've tried everything.


By default xp has an unsecured adminstrator account. At the logon screen press Ctl + Alt + Del twice to bring up the standard logon dialogue box. Type the username "administrator" without the quotation marks. Leave the password empty. Press ok to login. Hopefully that gets you logged on to windows so you can reset your user account

Applying the settings to the logon desktop


Next, you need to apply the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop / Welcome Screen (Technically, HKEY_USERS\.Default registry key), so that the Screensaver is invoked when no user is logged on. Copying all the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop (or Welcome Screen) manually is a tough task. Use Tweak UI instead.
Download and install TweakUI.
Launch TweakUI and click Logon, click Settings.
Select Screensaver from the list box and choose Copy Now
The Screensaver settings are applied to the Logon Desktop
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
Allow few minutes at the Logon screen, to test if the Screensaver is working properly. The Screensaver should launch after the timeout. It will look as if the Company Logo moves around.
Additional Tip
The User interface / slider allows the minimum value for picture change interval to 6 seconds only. To reduce the change interval to less than 6 seconds, alter the registry value named ChangeInterval (Set decimal value 1000 for 1 Second, and so forth) in this key:
HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow
For Current user profile, make the change here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow

With no logon wallpaper set, Windows displays a pre-defined color for the logon desktop. ( If you have enabled Welcome Screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to see the logon screen background color. ) To change the logon background color to that of your choice, you need to alter the registry:
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT and press Enter
Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors
Backup the registry key by exporting to a REG file
In the right pane, double-click Background
In the Edit String dialog box, type the Color code in R G B format and then click OK.
Example: Type 0 0 0 if you want to see a Black background. You can choose any combination from 0-255
Points to ponder
If the logon Wallpaper is set, the background Color may not be visible. So, you must reset the Wallpaper value to a blank string in this key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
If the Background value is set under the following Winlogon registry key, the above setting is ignored. In other words, the Winlogon\Background value takes precedence over the .DEFAULT..\Background value.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
