Dell BIOS UpdateDell bios upgrade
Ever wanted to update your bios on your computer or laptop but cant because your not running windows. Here's a solution we came across that seems to work for the Dell 1521 Laptop and should work on other Dell also running Linux. This will work for Dell computers running both Gentoo and Ubuntu Linux.
If you want to install Ubuntu for this machine type we recommend you install the Lucid Lynx version 10.04, the 64Bit version functions as adequately as the 32Bit version, however apart from some slowness I noticed when using the browser the 64 bit seems just as good as that of the 32 bit version at least as far as I know. Lucid Lynx Version 10.04 is the LTS (Long Term Support) there are later version from Ubuntu, Linux Mint and others that may work but so far the only one I have found that the wireless works on 64 bit and 32 bit is Lucid Lynx.
