Initial password after a fresh install of SQL Server 2000

Wondering what is the password for login :SA after installing SQL Server 2000? Greg Low explains in this expert response.

What is the password for login :SA after installing SQL Server 2000 for the first time?
SQL Server 2000 gets you to assign a password for SA when you install the server, if you have selected mixed mode authentication. There is also a check box you can tick if you really need to insist on a blank SA password – highly not recommended! If you only selected Windows authentication, then converted to mixed mode, you'll need to log on using a Windows login, then assign a password to SA.
