?Disable Anti Virus in BIOS?

Hello wizards. I have installed Drive Image following a bad crash. I would like to use it, but the first thing it tells me to do is disable Norton AntiVirus in the BIOS. I got into the BIOS, checked all the menus and couldn't find it. Under the security menu, it only had options for setting supervisor and user passwords. Can one of you give me a tip or two as to how to disable the Norton program in the BIOS?
I have a Dimension 4100, 800, purchased August 2000.

mkmax,

You didn't find it because is isn't there. You can disable NAV from within Windows--it isn't contained in the BIOS at all.

Thanks Denny. That makes sense since it didn't look like it was there. I wonder why Drive Image gives that instruction many times in their manual if it is not possible. I hope the rest of the instructions are correct.
