Arrow 2 Utilities I Need

First I need a decent free disk image reader (.IMG Files) for reading bootdisk images, etc. and then writing them to a floppy disk.

Secondly I am looking for a utility which would allow me to resest/change a Windows Xp Home administrator's password while in DOS mode.
A customer forgot his admin password and I can't do a windows repair without it, but I think I can boot into DOS mode and hopefully change it from there.
If you know where I can get these please post a link I will be very grateful

I have a password reset disk i can send you by email. The disk image, winiso will let you do so much with an iso, like up to 100mb i think..

Cool Warez Monster, I'll PM you about the reset disk. Will winiso allow me to use diskette images as well, in the .IMG format? I'll use that mainly for dos bootdisks which are still a handy thing to have.
