The boot process will not interfere with your BIOS - all you need to do is make sure that your pc is set to boot from CD.
If you have a recent graphics card and pleanty of memory, you may as well go with the graphical install. It's easy to use and looks good. If your pc is lower spec, or you get problems with the graphical install, try the text install - it's the same as the graphical one, just less pretty

as stated above if you have an ok system, then try the GUI install if you are anything familure with a Microsoft install, you can do the RH install. its that simple on the GUI side.

heck for your first time out of the box, just do a standard user or workstation install and let RH do it ALL for you.
