How can I bypass the logon password on Windows 2000 Pro?
You cannot bypass the logon password on Windows 2000 Professional (or on Server, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 or Windows NT for that matter). These OSs can be configured to automatically log on using a specific account, and there are tools that can be used to break into these systems if you have physical possession of the computer. These tools either assist you in cracking passwords or replacing passwords, but they do not "bypass" the logon process.
