User Password

Select this option to set the user password. The user password is the lower level password of the two normally present on the system. The user password usually allows the system to be booted, but does not allow access to the BIOS setup program. The supervisor password must be used to enter the BIOS setup program.

Note: On some systems, either the supervisor or user passwords will allow access to the BIOS setup program. In this case the existence of two passwords may be to allow a single password to be set up for an administrator, which will work for multiple machines, while the user password is individual for each machine.
