DESCRIPTION
===========
The administrator-password set in the BIOS of the K7S5A(L) locks out BIOS-access
from the console. However, it does not disable access to the boot-menu. Eventhough
the system is configured to boot from harddrive only, and has an admin-password set,
someone with physical access to the system can still boot from floppy or CD using
the boot-menu.
