BIOS Master Password for Award 4.5x on DFI mobos

On DFI motherboards with Award 4.5x BIOS the permanent, hard-coded,
manufacturer, back-door password which will ALWAYS work regardless of
any user passwords set IS:

Y. C. Lu

(spaces and caps as shown)

He is the founder of DFI, so they used his name as the master
password.

For some reason I don't see this listed in ANY master password list
anywhere. (?) But it works, for sure. Also, it's worth trying on ANY
DFI motherboard's BIOS.

Enjoy!

Is there a web site or particular newsgroup that one can go to for the
master password list?
