All you ever wanted to know about BIOS:
BIOS is independent of OS - it's the hardware's internal operating system. It's in the BIOS settings that you establish initial boot order.

A lot of those settings looked like system prefs.
What you say helps me understand - BIOS is, as it were, deeper in than system prefs and that's why I have to go here to change things.
(btw, accessing BIOS for a PC neophyte, but long-time Mac-user, was less than easy; on our mini we must have tried a dozen times to hit the function key when told in mechdrew's install instructions - it only worked if we hit the function key before the dell logo appeared just after we powered up.)
