Greetings Netters (again),

I posted this request yesterday, but under a totally non-related subject. 
Please accept my appologies and let me try again.

Can anyone out there in Net Land recommend a simple (and preferably 
inexpensive) password protection program for a DOS machine. All it has to 
do is prevent the computer from booting from the hard disk until a password 
has been entered from the keyboard. Security doesn't have to be really 
tight, most of the people around the area would be scared off by a good 

Some machines let you password protect in the BIOS, but the one we need to 
protect naturally doesn't.

If enough people are interested, I'll post a summary of responses.

Thanks in advance.
