    Admin password and Ghost problem

    Hi
    First some background. I was employed as a ICT Tech assistant at an upper school a month or so ago. On my very first day the Network Manager left, leaving me (not a network specialist) holding the baby. The baby consists of 9 servers, several hundred laptops/desktops and hardly a scrap of documentation or map of the network.
    As can be imagined, I have been tearing out my hair during this 'baptism of fire', attempting to figure out what the f***'s going on and praying that no major problem occurs. So far I've been very lucky.
    One problem I currently have is that although there is a set of ghost CDs for most PCs, I don't have Admin passwords to log on once the ghost recovery is done.
    Does anyone know of a utility that can get round this

    is the partition NTFS? if it is you can d/l a password reseter app, the one i use to change the admin account is "NT Recovery" if you have trouble finding an app PM me.
