At TAFE we use a nice little "utility" called KillCMOS that if you can boot off floppy it will erase the CMOS - and clears the password in the process ;)

Why the hell would you erase your BIOS, except when you r flashing it? Other than to be mean...

To clear BIOS password protection done by a former owner that either can' be contacted or can't remember the password used or one set by ones built by major PC assemblers for the business sector who don't want there employees bein' able to access it but have since sold the PC's to the general public when they are no longer any use to the business. ;)
