So my university just disabled printing multiple pages per sheet (greedy bastards ...) They de-selected "advanced printing options" in the printer properties. As that tab is grayed-out, i can't re-enable it. I can get a command shell open (not a true dos box frown ), but (obviously) dumping the SAM isn't as simple as copy c:..... a:\, LOL. Also, the network restrictions still exist in a command shell. I noticed the admins never deleted the original SAM.LOG from the winnt\repair directory. Is that of any use? I tried using Windows's Backup utility to grab the SAM while the system's running, but not sure why it's not working. I know that there're a lot of things written about how the SAM operates, and i know some of the tools used, but I'm thinking stealing all the passwords for the network is a litttttttllee extreme to save a couple of bux (and trees, lol.) As trying to get NTFS running is a little (well, probably a lot) over my head, I'm looking for options.

Are you sure that the administrators disabled printing multiple pages per sheet? It's possible that the printer doesn't support that, and as a result, the print dialog doesn't allow you to check it.

"... university just disabled ..." implies pretty strongly that whatever was disabled used to be enabled, lol

So, yes, it used to be enabled.
