I just built a machine using a Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1 32-bit
OEM DVD this weekend. Once Vista was installed and activated, I
discovered that the Administrator account was disabled by default. I
did some work using the administrator-level account I created during
installation, but I didn't like this approach -- I wanted the real
Administrator account. So, I STFW and enabled it using the Local Users
and Groups MMC console:
I finished up with the real Administrator account, including installing
Cygwin and sshd. I made the changes noted above plus another (/var?),
and had the script create an account to run sshd. sshd works.
