"Is there a recovery partition?"

Disc Management will tell you. It can look at the disk. We can't.
http://www.google.com/search?q=xp+disc+management will tell you all you need (and more) on the first page.

"I hit F10"

Why F10? Is that in some instruction or manual? You didn't tell.

Resetting the administrator password is free. Google NTPASSWD or PARTED MAGIC for 2 common tools. The last one, by the way, includes a partition editor to answer my first question.
