Macs don't use BIOS, instead it's called "Open Firmware," you can access it by holding Command-Option-O-F while your computer is booting up.

If you need to install windows, you need Bootcamp.

Even then, there isn't much you can change (or anything worth changing)

This is a pre-Intel mac, that can't be done.
