       # eeprom security-mode=none as root
     You have disabled the PROM password in your machine.
      # eeprom security-mode=(command|boot) as root
     You will then be prompted for a new one...

     If you forget the 'PROM' password and super user password, you have
to call SUN spport engineers to reset the 'PROM'.

Thanks very much !
