Passwords

As many as three passwords may be needed for any

hard-disk password (HDP), and the supervisor password
(SVP).
If any of these passwords have been set, a prompt for it
appears on the screen whenever the computer is turned
on. The computer does not start until the password is
entered.
Exception: If only an SVP is installed, the password
prompt doesn't appear when the operating
system is booted.
