Hello to all nice and helpfull people,
I am havin a complicated situation whit a legacy laptop. It's a Thinkpad 760. I really wanted to use a compact flash adapter with it to boot linux. The whole conception of diskless laptop sounds really cool and I was very happy to buy one PCMCIA CF adapter for my purproses, but was feeling quite f***ed from IBM when I discovered something - the laptop has Supervisor password. It's the most stupid thing I ever heard - I mean even with it i could use my hard drive and everything else, but can't change any of the BIOS's settings - so why the ****** had IBM to think of something so stupid - why is it to protect what - someone changing my bootdrive or what? However - I searched google and I'm almost sure that's imposible to change the supervisor pass without spending tones of money or desoldering the EEPROM holding it, but however - Do someone here knows how to change this password on the cheap?
P.S. I can always use a floppy to load CardSoft and still start linux from the CF, but it won't be the same (and this way I won't have CD, because it's interchangeble with the floppy and there is not hot-swap so..).
