    Yes - it has always been a complete joke from a security standpoint.

    You could set a CMOS password or set a password in a Boot Manger such as BiNG or XOSL to inhibit access by non-geeks.

    Help to start using BiNG. Some stuff about Boot CDs & Data Recovery Basics & Back-up using Knoppix.
