Umm ... no. A BIOS password sits in the CMOS and prompts the user when they either try to go into bios (BIOS) or boot the system (SYSTEM). A BIOS password cannot be removed by editing the autoexec.bat file. A BIOS password *can* be removed by jumpering the RESET jumper on the motherboard, OR by going into BIOS (with the password) and disabling it.
These are programs that are designed to add security to Windows 9x. they usually launch from Autoexec.bat and ask for a password before letting the rest of the boot-up process continue.
Again ... no. There exist utilities (syslock, I think) to lock a W9x box. Just do a "windows system lock utility" search on Google and something will pop up. At least that's what I did (about 3 months ago or so), and hits came back. And the software seems to work reasonably well.
... but locking a 9x computer is virtually impossible.
Guus: Good quick deconstruction of a TCP header.
Still ... I guess it was good for a 3am read.
