$USERNAME != $USER ($USERNAME = Win NT name)

In NT, I have a username, lets call it, 'myname', which has admin rights
(for the local PC). When I did a try mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd it never
created a listing  for danr -- it created one for Administrator --- and
that's what my $USER and home directory are set for. On the other hand,
Cygwin set my $USERNAME to 'myname'. What's going on here?

Thanks
