Bios Protection

So I'm wondering on what other people do as far as to protect their BIOS settings. Besides a password for entry, is there anything that can be done to protect it? It seems to me that someone who wants access to the BIOS would simple either use the jumper on the mobo or just remove the CMOS battery for a bit. Is there any way to hardcode BIOS settings, or any way of changing the "factory" settings on is to be reset to revert to your settings in the event of a jump or discharge? Any way to remove factory passwords too?

The only real way to prevent someone from getting into your BIOS in the first place, is by placing the computer case into a modified SAFE. Once someone has physical access to the hardware its gave over.

That is true, but as an added layer of security, is it possible?

You could try chaining and locking it down with pad-locks. Or you could make a steel cage, where the PC case could be placed inside and the cage bolted down to the floor.
