They can be stored in many different locations, depending on configuration
Windows 2000 in a network (Active Directory) environment, their easy to crack. Windows 2003 is far more secure, but still possible.
I have a Windows 2003 test environment sitting on a virtual PC somewhere, that we were using to test retrieving active directory based passwords from.
If you have AIM or MSN and want to talk more on their (Not the best to talk about this on the forums, certain people get upset), feel free to add my AIM or MSN in my profile.
I may even put the active directory test server online, still got it
