 Subject:  compaq sff no keyboard boot (No F1)
 Date:  Fri, 18 Feb 2005 12:40:29 +1100
Have been running m0n0 on a Compaq sff for ages, just installing another
one now, and couldn't for the life of me remember howto run them without
a keyboard ... after much googling, here it is for those who care ..

The SFF's are great for m0n0walls, p2 350, 128mb ...

- Run BIOS setup by pressing F10
- Goto 'Security' and 'Set Power On Password'
- Type in a password and F10 to accept the change
- As soon as password is set, 'Password Options' will appear under
'Security' tab
- Enable 'Network Server' mode in there
- F10 to save changes and exit

When booting up it won't ask you for F1 anymore. However, if you or
someone else plugs in a keyboard it will ask for a power-on password.
