Copying user details between Win XP systems

Postby MartyBartfast » Sat Oct 21, 2006 10:49 am

Hi,

My setup:
Kids PC - Windows XP, they use it for homework etc.
My Laptop, dual boot Ubuntu & Windows XP - for use by the kids in emergencies.

My problem:
The kids only use the laptop very infrequently and they've always forgotten their password when they come to use it.

My Question:
Where on Windows XP is the password stored, and can I copy over (rsync) the file(s) from the desktop to the laptop Windows partition in order to keep the passwords in sync?


TIA for any help.
