no bios-access on the libretto l1 -- only some strange bios-tools i have 
to use in windows which do not will run with the windows 2k which is 
installed. i downloaded them for windows 2k but they do not want to 
function (and what i read about it i will not be able with it to figure 
out which devices the bios support)
i know that i can boot with an usb-floppy when i push f on startup, and 
with a cd-rom with c on start-up.
there are no informations in the net which usb-floppys are supported, i 
know only that there _was_ a list  (the links to the page doesn't 
function any more) in the net with the informations which cd-roms are 
supported for boot because not all will function
