To clarify, what luke is saying (i think) is that a large chunk 
of the puzzle has been solved.  This does not mean that you can change
you NT password from and NT box using the 

	CTRL+ALT+DEL -> Change Password 

option.  You can change your password using the rpcclient 
utility using the above commands.
