if I'm not mistaken just put in the wrong password a couple times and it will let you in anyway...security on win98 was pathetic. did you try doing that?

Windows 98 will let you do almost anything as a normal user so you should be fine.

i just used to skip the password, when it would tell me to enter it, instead of putting anything in i would just click next and it would let me in..
