most probably such information is stored in SAM.

however, you will need read/write access to SAM. the most advanced Linux 
tool for SAM manipulation is single floppy to change Administrator 

what You want is very tricky.
much simplier to join your Linux machine under different name.
or simply to delete WinXP and run just Linux.
