change windows network password

Specs: Windows XP
I have a different XP SP3 machine now. I can connect to Windows Network servers using my old password, but I have no way to change the password. The way I used to change it was by computer properties, advanced tab, and user profiles setting button. I would then select a profile from the list, since I did have an NT domain profile registered. I didn't use the profile because I preferred to use the local machine instead. I don't have that profile in the list on the machine I'm using now. I tried joining the domain but it said I'm not authorized. I wanted to join, then change back to use the local machine again, thereby getting the profile name in the list so I can change the password. On my other machine when I clicked control panel, user accounts I got a different display and I could also change the domain password there. Now I get the default XP user GUI with icons for users, etc.

I can access the Windows Network, NT Domain, whatever just fine. I just have no way to change the password.

We use Novell mostly, but once I'm logged in to my workstation it's straight Windows stuff from there, so Novell shouldn't be an issue.

Please help with password. Thanks

The usual way to change your password is to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and then click on the "Change Password" button.

Novell provides a GUI for CTRL-ALT-DEL. A list of resources is provided for changing passwords. So I could reply to this thread I did CTRL-ALT-DEL again, and the domain was listed this time in the resources. I was able to select it and change the password.

It probably wasn't there before because I hadn't logged in and accessed it. Thanks!
