Date - Pretty self-explanatory really. Set the current date.

 

Time - Similar to the Date option, set the current time.

 

IDE Primary Master - This is your primary master IDE device, usually the hard drive. Selecting this option and hitting enter will bring up a sub menu that allows you to set the access mode, capacity, cylinders, heads, landing zone, sector and precomp of the device.

IDE Primary Slave - This is your primary slave IDE device. It has the same sub menu options as IDE Primary Master.

 

IDE Secondary Master - This is your secondary master IDE device. It has the same sub menu options as IDE Primary Master.

 

IDE Secondary Slave - This is your secondary slave IDE device. It has the same sub menu options as IDE Primary Master.

 

Drive A - Select the first floppy drive that is installed in your PC. This is usually a 1.44MB 3 1/2" drive.

 

Drive B - Select the second floppy drive that is installed in your PC. If there is only one floppy drive installed, select "none".

 

Video - Select the type of display adapter installed in your PC. This is usually EGA/VGA.

 

Halt On - This is where you can choose what errors your system will halt on during POST. I sometimes boot up my PC without a keyboard, so I selected "All, But Keyboard".
