Can't change boot order in BIOS

I was trying unsuccessfully to install Fedora-13
on a rather old (maybe 11 years) machine
with an Asus P2B-LS motherboard, using pxeboot
(which worked on several other machines),
and I found after some time that changing the boot order
in the BIOS had no effect.
Whatever order I chose the machine boots from
one of the two SCSI drives.

Has anyone else met this problem?

It's not the end of the world,
as (hopefully) I can transfer the DVD iso file,
and add a stanza in grub.conf .
