Debian is a Linux operating system, not a Microsoft Windows one.  This is
not the place to ask questions about Microsoft products.  However, just
this one time:

You don't say whether you are having problems with your Windows
password or a network password.  I think that you can do this to
fix it if it is a WIndows password problem:

Boot up from a floppy.

Look on your C: drive for the password file and delete it.  The password
file will be called C:\WINDOWS\{USERNAME}.PWL where {USERNAME} is
your user name.  Delete it.

Boot up Windows 98 normally.  It will probably ask you for a new password.


Programming without a hex editor is like watchmaking without a hammer.
