    no access to bios


    Hello all,

    I'm a newb to linux, though I'm familiar with unix. Having some trouble with an old pc i recently decided to gentoo. Its a sony vaio pentium III running windows 95. Problem I'm having is getting to bios. I've tried repeating esc, F1, F2, F3, etc. and delete at startup to no avail. The startup screen also gives me no indication as to how to get to it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    what kind of bios is it, that should give you some indication of what key sequence to use, as most brands use the same key-stroke on all bioses they manufacture
