Access to BIOS settings on DL380


I am a novice in this area hence this basic (hopefully!) question. I have a DL380 original and don't know how to access the BIOS settings. I have read about setting them from linux, but I wondered if you could do it from windows 2000, or by simply pressing a key during boot up. No message appears regarding BIOS setting during boot time.

Any ideas appreciated.
