I put in a friends home disk and went to repair the one on my hard drive and it said I needed an admisistrator password. What do they mean? Is there a default password that can be used?

During setup you enter your Administrator's password. This could be for the Administrator's account on the PC or it could be the other password you set at installation for repair/recovery mode.

Try the admin password.. if you can't figure it out, if you can go back into Windows, reset the Admin password to blank or something you can remember, then try the repair.
