I just got a Balde 100 it seems to work but when I enter OBP and try to boot cdrom (in order to install Gentoo) system asks me for firmware password. How can I remove that password protection?

The Bios has an protection.
Refer to the mainboard manual to clear the CMOS.

BIOS on SPARC?
I don't have a manual though I am searching for one at the moment. I heard that firmware password can be deleted, but only by root user running Solaris. Unfortunately my Blade has empty disk and I want to get Gentoo run on it.

"STOP+N - reset NVRAM to default settings" will this work or will it only mess up more? I prefer to ask first rather then try it out.

You can search http://docs.sun.com for the OBP 4.x reference guide (comes in PDF format), which will probably help you here (assuming your Blade is running a 4.x series firmware).

Actually the documentation said to "contact with the vendor". Anyway I managed to remove firmware password thanks to Solaris & "#eeprom security-mode=none"
