You can get in the BIOS by using the hot key that correspond with the model of your PC.
Watch the bottom of the screen on boot. There will be a message that tells you which key to press to enter the SETUP. Generally it would be one of the following: F1, F2, F12, F10, DEL, ESC, ENTER...As your PC starts, press the appropriate key repeatedly, about once each second.
If your reactions are slow, understandable, but you were able to see which key you needed to press, restart the computer, & with your finger at the ready on the correct key press it repeatedly
Knowing which make & model of computer you have would narrow down the choices.
I am not aware of any setting in Win XP that would allow you to slow down the boot time. Accessing the BIOS is independent of any OS on your computer because the BIOS is part of your motherboard hardware.

I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

To interrupt the BIOS, press the Pause-Break key on the upper right of the keyboard. Press Enter to resume BIOS.

You may have changed the time to show OS in the System Startup and Recovery section.
