    You need to flash it, with the software. There's also a utility that will let you do this.

    It's not recommeneded to flash your mobo's BIOS unless you REALLY need to.

    If you screw up, you screw up for good.

    And hello Brad. ;)

    There's should be a program that ASUS provides (should be on your drivers cd or maybe downloadable off the web for your board).

    You'll either be able to do it in Windows and then it will take effect on reboot, OR you'll have to make a boot disk, it'll run do its thing, then you take it out and restart your computer regularly.

    Only flash the BIOS if it's absolutely necessary.
