I will be the first to admit that I have not read the Jed Clampett Definitive Guide to Home Computer Repair, however, there are a few things here that I must disagree with. The first method of using the CMOS jumper to reset is tried and true. However, using a password cracker or even the C script would pre-suppose that you had access into either Windows or at the very least DOS. IF you can't get past a BIOS password, how do you get to DOS? Even using a boot floppy you still have to get past the BIOS.
