IBM Thinkpad - How do you enter BIOS?

Apparently the BIOS was set to boot from C: only. Then sombody formatted C: with the intent of reloading Windows.
Now the computer won't boot from a: to start the install.
The only model number I can see on the thing is "type 9545"

It seems to me that on those Thinkpads, if you hold any key down on the keyboard from the time you switch the power on until you get an error message, it will then give you the opportunity to enter the BIOS setup.

By George you've done it again! Submit that as a Q. and it's yours. Actually it provokes an error and runs a diagnostic. Then you have to press the "No Exit" symbol to get to Easy Setup. I almost missed that.

Do all comments always go with the Anwser? I'd hate to buy this anwser without the comments! :)
