Should I have set this up when installing the XP or can I log on as administrator subsequently?

i would think if you went into control panel and selected users/profiles or something like that you can add administrator from there i believe.

By default, XP Home has the password blank for the Administrator. This
may be different on OEM versions. Log on to the machine with another
Administrator level account. Click Start, Run and enter CONTROL
USERPASSWORDS2 Put the check mark in Users must enter a username and
password......... (you don't have to leave it). Highlight the
Administrator account and click Reset Password. You don't need to know
the old one to do this.
