For this mission i used cain and abel http://www.oxid.it/cain.html
as one other said
"Use Cain and Abel on the hash. This mission was designed to get you familiar with it as a tool."
Edit: god.. conscience u were faster ^^
The computer I'm cracking it on is Linux. But, a few days ago I tried Cain and Abel on my Windows computer and it said it would take 2.5 years to crack the hash.
Edit: Nevermind, I was using the wrong hash value. God, I feel stupid. lol
Also, a hint for people that made the same mistake as me. It says the database is 10 years out of date.
