I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but IBM laptop hdd's have a password that can be set on them that
requires it to be entered on boot. This differs from a bios password in that it is on the hdd and can not be bypassed
by insertion in to another system or by a bios password reset.

i read the thread hard disk encryption and now it opened a question for me.
TrueCrypt is very good for homeusers who just want to crypt one file or
partition but it offers no prebootauthentication.
Is there a very good working and secure opensource tool on the market wich
offers this and has a good performance?
I've looked around for it but didnt found something usefull for me. It has
to be extremly secure and a good performance too....
Someone an idea?
