I have here a 486 machine, just got it for a fw. It has a BIOS password
so I cannot remove the HD definition and it will not boot without manual

I want to clear the password. Tried to remove the battery for a few
no go.

No manual available. Checked the silkscreen carefully and could not see
an obvious jumper.

The mobo is a VL/I-486SV2G-GX4. I can swear it is an ASUS but it does
not say so.
