PWBG v2.0 -- THE FLOPPY BOOT PREVENTATIVE --
Used in conjunction with any password program
prevents hard drive access when the computer
is booted from a floppy diskette. Now SCSI
compatible and virus aware. A small device
driver password program is included.
PW.SYS is a small device driver password program which can be used in
conjunction with PWBG 2.0 to provide a reasonable level of protection
for IBM PC/AT or compatibles. SETPW.EXE is a utility to set the PW.SYS
password.

To use, copy both files to the root directory of drive C: and then edit
your config.sys file so that the first line reads: DEVICE=C:\PW.SYS
