Well, not really, but it IS a good idea to keep a record of your CMOS
settings for the BIOS. You really can't keep a backup of your BIOS. Part
of it is read-only and doesn't need backing up, and part of it is EEPROM.
You can keep a back-up of that, but it can only get corrupted if a BIOS
flash update goes awry and if it is corrupted, you probably can't restore it
because your system may not boot. There are add-ons that allow you to
switch in a duplicate BIOS chip if a flash update goes wrong.
