Default Flashing the Bios

I've heard people say things about flashing there bios. What does it mean to flash your bios? Also I tried looking at google but nothing but crud comes up, nothing that really expains what it is.

you have to be a warrior to flash your bios!!

flash is actually the type of memory device. it is a kind of Programmable read only memory. and is programmed on a page level ot a byte level. it retains its contents even if you turn of the power. some fancy physics, Fowler-Nordhein( FN) tunneling.

Bios is the basic input output operating system. basically the BIOS tells the mobo that it is a mobo, it has got so many bits and bobs and it's default values for this and that is this and that. SATA capability, USB capability ..

actually it would be nice if some one coudl list all the features in the BIOS
