    "BIOS Passwords"

    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.
    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.

    ... but locking a 9x computer is virtually impossible.
    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.


    Guus: Good quick deconstruction of a TCP header.


    Still ... I guess it was good for a 3am read.
