How to know if my BIOS supports UEFI?

Just watched the Win8 keynote thing, and seemed like the fast boot times required something called UEFI(?). What is that? How do I know if I have it? And if I do have support for it, do I have to do something to enable it, or is it "already there" sort of?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you do not have it there is no way to add it. – Moab Sep 13 '11 at 20:06

This is the successor of the good old BIOS.

Many modern servers already have UEFI, there mostly resulting in longer boot-times. Mac-systems (with Intel-Processors) also rely on UEFI.
