Upgrading the BIOS.

Hello HP users,
I would like to upgrade my computer's BIOS to a more recent version while mine has become quite old.
In fact, this will be my first time performing such "critical" modification on my Netbook.
Here are the questions I'd like to ask about upgrading the BIOS:
>Is it the same as "Flashing" it ?
>Does it come with any benefits other than those shown in the website ?
> Is it ok making such a huge jump from the very first version to the last one directly ? (There are about 6 versions in between)
>What information do I need to save before starting the walkthrough ?
I have an HP Mini 311-1000CA PC running Windows 7 while it was originally running Windows XP at first place, regarding that it has compatible drivers with Windows 7 as in the HP website.
