It's not impossible to view the BIOS settings in an OS but if you
changed the BIOS settings you would still need to reboot before the
changes take effect, so there isn't much point in editing the settings
with a live OS running. Also you normaly take card of the BIOS
settings "before" the server is in production use.

Are you wanting to edit the setting on a headless or hard to get at
system? if so then you want a motherboard that has console
