How to change the loging name?

Question

I have this HP Pavilion that I want to give to my neighbor. It's 5 years old but I've soupped it up a little. It has windows 98SE and my question is, how do i change the LOGON name from my name to his name without reinstalling the OS?

If I give it to him as is, he has to live with my name popping up when he installs new software, etc.

Thanks Guys, I really enjoy your radio program, Ray
