Frankly there is no security on Win98. To get into the machine just type in a new username and password.

you could also just press "esc" when it asks for your password or press the cancel button either way it will just boot into windows like there never has been a password
there's always a way!
cd protections are illegal!

The others are correct. There really is no security in Win9x products. If you want to keep the login names in use for some reason just go kill the *.pwl files on the machine and then re-create the names you want to use.
