Administrator Account does not Appear on Welcome Screen

By default, the following conditions are true in Windows Vista:

The built-in administrator account is disabled.
The built-in administrator account cannot log on to the computer in safe mode.

In some cases, Windows Vista may determine, during an upgrade from Microsoft Windows XP, that the built-in administrator account is the only active local administrator account. In this situation, Windows Vista leaves the built-in administrator account enabled. Additionally, Windows Vista puts this account into Admin Approval mode.

    I need to know how to do this when my Vista did not come with either a policy control module or the ability to see the Administrator when booting into safe mode
