Access bios IN windows?

I know there are motherboards coming out now that include inbuilt software allowing you to modify your bios from within windows, but is there a way of doing this that isnt specific to the motherboard? Some universal method? I doubt it...but it would be nice :P

I'd like to know the same.

It'd be nice to be able to modify some settings on the fly

Its only partially on the fly, as far as I know you would still have to perform a full restart to apply settings.

Those motherboards that allow settings to be changed from Windows are designed that way. It cannot be done otherwise.
