    There is a tutorial here on AO[1]. You find some description of
    windows hashes etc. and further references also here[2].

    Please note that LM-hashes were designed ages ago - they
    were considered to be "secure" anno 1993. It may be fun to
    "crack" them, but I strongly recommend to disable this feature[3].
    Since the LM-hashes are so simple, a rainbow table with
    a cracking propability of 99.9% is just 64 GB[4].
