if you need a respec, just download a character editor.
As I said, Shadowmaster and Zonfire should work well enough. Either relocate the points manually, or just set the quest that gives you the respec to "not completed" and do it over again.
It's not like you're really cheating, just going around a pretty stupid restriction in a pretty old game. And you're not in a competitive environment either, so...
(just remember to back up your char files just in case, and dl the editor for the appropriate version of the game).
