Unhappy Getting into cmos settings

To get my Linux 7.2 to install I have to get my system to boot from the cdrom. I have a Compaq Deskpro 4000 how do I get into the settings. I've tried F2 and crtl+alt + enter. Can anyone assist me please or suggest a link or site to find an answer. Thanks.

That's assuming the small bios partition is still on the hard drive. If you've blown away all the partitions from a previous OS install, you'll need to find the setup disk set from the compaq/hp website. I have a set of disks at work, but I'm on vacation until Monday
