Hi,
I got this new Windows 2000 machine and I did the setup.

I did it without changing the default user "Administrator".
How do I change that to a new user "XYZ" having all the
access and previlieges as the "Administrator".

Help appreciated.

Open Computer Management (start>run>compgmmt.msc), browse to Local
Users/GRoups, right click the administrator account and goto rename.
