If password locking the screensaver doesn't work for you, I'm positive that you can set up more than one user under Win98. I hate to have to do this but I have a movie to get to, I was just checking to see what was happening, since I don't know off the top of my head, I'm betting JAMMAN or some othre friendly tech will come along and save the day, but if all else fails you can go to the dreaded microsoft website and search for help there. Good luck, and sorry :(

It does seem unusual going strictly from what I would assume to be the point of setting up the password ( block people on start up), but when I did that to mine ( back when I was using win98) it only asked for the pass when I went to change the bios settings, so it may be the mobo, or maybe just the bios. We'll see what others say, it may require a flashing if that's the case. I still think that a pass on the screensaver, or setting up more than one account in win98 would work just fine. Blocking access in POST does completely bar any chance of the unwanted user getting in with out the password or using "password recovery" software or drastically removing the CMOS battery
