How to Enter BIOS

I need to reset BIOS of my Toshiba Portege 3280CT to autoboot from an CDROM (not SCSI). The CD is active and mounts/umounts well but I can't install a new version of Ubuntu. I did at one time have an answer to this question, but I've lost it. Can you help?

Thanks much

Thanks for this suggestion, but I need to enter the BIOS to change the CDROM setting. I found a possible answer at another URL that says to press ESC and then F1 after powering up. It sounds like what I tried before (a long time ago) and I'll post whether this works or not.

And, yes, I do have a backup of all my data, but I bought the laptop used and it didn't come with any Toshiba disks or CDs.

when you boot the machine, check for a boot options option to tell the machine to boot from the cd/dvd drive, alternatively go into the bios settings and there will be an option in there to set which device to boot from.
