you will not loose any data from you computer unless you screw the bios update up, which even then you can use bios recovery.
i tried to update my bios but summin went wrong and no updates would recognise my chipset. but from my experience it wasnt to hard if you print of the instructions i think you have to do it in DOS for all mobos. if you need to have a windows 98/95 boot disk pm i can send you somethign to create one. if you dont have access to one that is
