Cracking Windows SAM file

A friend of mine showed me a great online video shows cracking the Window’s SAM file using the BackTrack live CD.

The Windows SAM file which is a database stored as a registry file stores users’ passwords in a hashed format.

The video can be found here and the BackTrack live CD can be downloaded here.
