Boot-Password Protect

Hi guys! excellent work with the new Chameleon!
I think it would be nice if somewhere in the future a boot-password feature is supported.

Not to squash your idea, but the password would be insanely easy to get around! Install a new bootloader or boot from a boot-132 disc... Your better off passwording your BIOS ;)

I think this is a reasonable request, as not all the people knows about bootloaders. This is enough protection to keep your wife or your kids away.

I'm toying with the idea of putting the bootloader on a USB drive - this way if the drive isn't in the system... no boot. Wonder if this would work, hmmm?

For the moment, a Bios Password is ok for me. I think there are more important features to implement.  :)
