M58 with password protected BIOS - gov't

I received a model 7360AQU that was supposed to go on a network for OS installtion.  It is licensed for Vista/Windows 7 and I have the IBM Recovery CD/DVD set but I am not able to boot from the CD drive because it is disabled in the BIOS.  Can't change this because the BIOS has a password.  I can just enter but when I change anything important it doesn't allow me to save and exit.  Tried moving the reset jumpers but may not have done things correctly.
