Default problem with windows xp installed with qemu

've just succeeded in installing Windows XP Professional Edition on my Fedora Core 4 box using qemu. However, I can't login! I didn't set any password but i am prompted for a password to login. Nothing I try works. Leaving the password box blank doesn't work either. I keep getting this error:

================================================== ==========
The system cannot log you on due to the following error:

The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted

Please try again or contact your system administrator.

================================================== ==========

What do I do here? I don't want to reinstall XP since it took me 3 hours this time.

Did you try the administrator account?If you are in domain,you must be added from the active directory of the server.

Are you in a domain network? If so,you need to know the administrator password of the domain server....

Domain network? What's that? I just ran the install through QEMU and that's all.

While you had installed the OS,there is a window that asked for administrator password,if you forget that,you should reinstall your OS and remember the password you're going to provide.
