Frustration is...

Getting into the BIOS on a Compaq Proliant. At the logo screen neither the documented F10 or F12 seem to work, and the jumps are set so I should be allowed.

Why would I want to do a silly thing like access the bios? The system was running linux just fine off of a scsi drive. then I added a couple SATA drives for mass storage. The system is trying to boot from the SATA drives instead of the SCSI drive and whining that there is no OS installed.

So, what's the trick for getting into the bios and changing the boot order?

Or do I have to break down and install the OS (and GRUB on the SATA drives, then point grub at the scsi drive, and dele the OS from the SATA drives?
