    I have obtained a Packard Bell P2 266MHz machine. I plan to set this machine up with Debian so I can setup a remote access/SSH server.

    I need to get into the BIOS to change the boot order, but it is password protected. I got this machine from my brothers company.. they have had this sitting in a closet for nearly 4 or 5 years, so I offered to take it off his hands.. but unfortunately he doesn't remember the bios password.

    I know I've seen stuff out there before.. but what are my options as far as getting this password?

    If you pull the CMOS battery or put a jumper across the proper pins, the CMOS and BIOS will default back to factory specs, with no password.
