Can't logon after switching from domain to workgroup

I have a laptop running Windows 2000 that had been part
of a domain at my workplace. I used the same
logon/password whether the laptop was connected to the
workplace lan or if it was disconnected in stand-alone
mode. I recently setup a home network and wanted to be
able to share files between my laptop and my other home
computers. I changed the network setting on my laptop to
make it part of a Workgoup (with the same workgroup name
as my other home computers) instead of a domain. Just
temporarily. Once the laptop was rebooted, I can no
longer logon using the normal logon/password that I had
always used when the laptop was configured as part of a
domain. Now since I can't logon, I can't change it back
to the domain setting just to get back to the original
configuration. What do I do?

Your workplace system administrators will have to assist you in setting
things back to rights.

Logon using the local administrator account.
