Default Windows XP Passwords

Something I've been curious about...

Where does Windows XP store the user account passwords and what kind of encryption does it use? I have found lots of software that will recover passwords, but I am more curious on how they work. Anyone know?

Not trying to crack anything, just curious about how the algorithm works for the encryption. Thanks for the help though.
