Can't change CMOS settings on my Win98 SE desktop

I need to know how to modify my BIOS settings in Win98 SE on my desktop system

I have tried using various F keys at startup with no success.  I have also tried using the CTRL key.

I have a MicroFlex Owner's Manual from MicroExpress but it doesn't say how to enter BIOS or change CMOS settings.

My problem is that Norton GoBack prevents startup from proceeding.  When I reboot, Norton tells me to press the spacebar to proceed with loading. When I do, I hear clicking noises from the tower.  If I wait long enough, the screen goes blank except for this error message: "Goback internal error. Failure code gb_genlog(xxx)"

I have saved NGBBoot to the computer I'm using now.  I have no idea how to burn this file to a CD, but I'll save that question until I've learned how to change my boot settings on my Win98 machine.

Standard key to enter Bios setup is DEL at startup.
