Can't switch users in XP

Double question: My XP Pro OS wont let me switch users anymore (5 account system), it will only let me log off. Second my brother got kicked from the computer and I forgot to get a password for administrator. Hes got his own password now. How do I reset the admin pass without using a linux boot disk?

Are you or another user that can access the computer running as admin? If so, Start/Run/lusrmgr.msc will give you the Local Users and Groups Snap-in from where you can reset the admin password.

To be able to switch users, go to Start - Settings - Control Panel - User Accounts - Change the way users log on and off, and enable Fast User Switching.
