Administration Password Lost

I have a Dimension 5150 my problem is that I have forgotten my admin password as I have not used it for some time. I have 2 other accounts setup for my children but they do not have administrator rights and I need to install new software but cannot because of the rights issue. Can anyone help with a fix to remove my password. I don't have the XP disk but I believe Windows XP can be re-installed using a function key at bootup but I will lose my childrens homework and games.

Thanks in anticipation

I have forgotten my password please help me

If this is a user account you are talking about, just log in as Administrator and re-set it. (If you didn't specify a password for the Administrator account when the machine was set up, then leave the password field blank.) If this is the Administrator account you are talking about, it gets a bit tricker. See these for more direction:
