Depending on what type of BIOS you have, you can go into your BIOS setup when your computer is starting (usually by hitting the delete key)and hit the printscreen key.  There are usually several different screens that you will need to go to and print out to get all the information.  Let me know what type of BIOS (AMI, AWARD, etc.) you have and I can give you step by step instructions to print the critical data.

OK, here it is, step by step.  This assumes that your printer is connected to the computer and turned on.

1. When you first turn on your computer, before it says Starting Windows 95, hit the delete key.  You can hit it several times to make sure you get it at the right time.  Your computer will enter CMOS Setup.  The screen should have a type of menu with several options.
2.  Hit enter to select the first item.  
3. When the next screen comes up, hit your print screen key on the keyboard.  (Depending on your printer, it may not spit out a page at this time.  If you want each screen of information on a seperate page, hit whatever button necessary on your printer for a from-feed.  If you don't care if the info is on seperate pages, continue to the next step.)  
4. Hit your escape key to get back to the menu.  
5. Hit the down arrow to get to the next item and hit enter.  
6. Go back to the third step.
Keep doing this until all the items have been selected.  There is no info to print on the options Load BIOS Defaults, Load Setup Defaults, IDE Auto Detection, and Password.  You can skip these items.  
Don't forget to make your printer do a form-feed when you are done.  Your last step will be to select 'Exit Without Saving' and answer yes if it asks you if you are sure.  Your computer will reboot at this point and you will have a printout of all your info stored in BIOS.
