  1. I have been lucky enough to end up with a Dell Inspiron 1000 whose bios is guarded by Mr. 93LC46B. Is a Serial eeprom programmer the only way to get past this? And if so, what softare would I need, and where would I get one from?

    I know Dell has a generator, but does anyone else in the world???

    there are no passsword in this eeprom. it's a LAN eeprom which contains MAC-address and some service information for ethernet controller.
