Default Help ME!

I have been trying to remove windows nt workstation 4.0 from a laptop my friend gave me.When I boot the computer up it brings me to a logon of which I do not have the password. Before getting to that ,it gives me the options start with remote access
or start with stand alone/lan connection.
All I really want to do is wipe out everything on the HDD and reload it with XP.But like I said , it keeps stoping me at the logon

2 Ways to go dude, Just get a Windows floppy boot disc & insert it into the A Drive or Get into your Bios & have your system boot from the CD Drive with your winXP disc in it & format away. Just follow the onscreen instructions.

put in your XP disk, go to install, when it gives the option to format, do that!
after that just let it install and you'll be set

Unless, as I said, the password protection is a half decent one.
