I have also heard that there might not be any Service Packs for Vista. MS has said "the new patching system means that we don't need to do SPs". I think this is a mistake from a marketing perspective, but maby true. It seems to work fine with most things now.
BIOS, or "Basic Input-Output System", is the built in "control panel" if you will, on your motherboard. It's the central most root place where the basic (and advanced) hardware settings are set, and where you can tweak hardware options (like overclocking, frequencies etc). Its not a place a computer newbie should be. You go into the bios before going into your os, usually by holding the "delete" key just after you turn your pc on.
Also, for the Vista thing, as long as the bugs are fixed at some point, I don't care how they do it (SP or patching service).
