Killcmos.c gets rid of CMOS passwords in BIOS usually. However I have found this doesnt work in EVERY computer.
And BIOS passwords are useful. Some computers are pysically more secure than others, you can put case locks on computers. Also on IBM computers, they store the BIOS password on a seperate unclearable ROM, so it is IMPOSSIBLE to reset the bios password. And if you reset the CMOS without knowing the BIOS password, the motherboard becomes useless.
