Default Possible to change Windows XP's hashing algorithm?

I was just wondering if it is possible to change the hashing algorithm that Windows XP uses to store passwords.

Something more secure, such as Whirlpool or RIPEMD.

Thanks!

If it was possible, wouldn't the method be all over the internet especially the geek community?
