FP: Making Changes To Publishing Address

I had Windows XP Professional put on my main computer yesterday and I am now having trouble Publishing from Front Page. So, I copied my website from my remote backup to the old computer and published from it. I noticed that the address it was trying to publish to is different from my old address. So, I went to my main computer again and tried to change the address. A window popped up that had "Administrator" in the first window and asked for some sort of password in the second window. I could not remember the password for it. Since I can publish from the old computer, is there a way to go into Front Page from my old computer and retrieving the password?
If not, what can I do to obtain the old password?
Thank you.

Generally, the only way I know is contact your hosting company. A lot of times the password is the same as logging onto your hosting account.

Thank you.

That worked. I used the same user id and password that I used to publish my site and it worked.

I find it easier to do it that way as I have too many to remember (and age is catching up with me ;) ). Though I do not know how "secure" it is as a practice. Of course, I do not do it with secure information.
