Forgot administrator password I am locked out

 wlckedDreamz -

I accidentally disabled all of my user accounts including the administrator. Now, I am locked out. Cannot remember password for administrator. I have tried to get into safe mode by hitting F8 but it will not go into safe mode to try and change or enter a new password. Am I on the right track?
System Configuration: Windows XP / Firefox 3.6.6
