On pc's you can enter cmos/bios setup by pressing a key like del while turning the computer on. Do macs have that too?

These are the only OSX startup key combinations that i know:

3 & 2 - 32bit kernel
6 & 4 - 64bit
option - startup disk selection

what else are there?
Macbook4,1, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Win7 Ultimate, Bootcamp 2.1

    Intel Macs use EFI. It isn't meant to be accessed by customers.
