I had trouble getting the pwdump program to work correctly on a german
version of NT4SP3.

I believe the problem is based on the fact that the german group
'Administrators' is called 'Administratoren', and Administrators is
hard-coded into the utility. Would it be possible to make that an optional

Unfortunately, I have no access to a C-Compiler on an NT-station, so I
cannot try it myself to ensure that this really was the problem.

I have found no way of manually modifying the rights on the SAM that was
reversible, so I'd like to see pwdump work on foreign (german) NTs.
