ummm, forgot to mention that you can't do that on XP Home.  The Local
Users and Groups item under Computer Management is disabled, and the 
local Administrator account cannot be accessed from within User Accounts.

It's one of many reasons why I usually recommend spending the extra $70 
or so to get XP Pro ;)
