With the advent of Centrino chips, it would be wise to devise some way to have the system snag an open AP in transit (assuming the machine is on) and "phone home" if a BIOS password is incorrectly entered more than say 3 times.

Keeping it at the BIOS level (while not 100% secure) is probably a better method than the O/S.
