Thank pad 380XD, press F1 to enter BIOS. I used it since many years ago
first with 4.7, later with 5.1 and 6.2. Shamed to still be a newbie
after so many years. I mostly use terminal on it for various tasks.

I guess I need some type of Windows 95 or MS DOS utility issued by IBM
in order to do any change in BIOS settings. At least that's what I
recall when I get it. Too many years passed and I am not sure now.
