Default Bios setting question

In the bios setting for halt on what is it best to set it at?
No errors, all errors, all, but keyboard, all, but diskette, or all but disk/key? Thanks.

Another question about integrated peripherals. Do I want usb keyboard and mouse support enabled or disabled? What would this do? And what about onboard serial ports. Should you go auto or what they have as default. Same question with parallel port and midi port address, irq, and cir port. Just curious if I should go with default?

you should try to leave everything that you dont know about at the default setting. changing just on eof those valuse can make your system screwy.
