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.
Like a lot of people I have at least one old pc kicking around in the loft, so I decided to put it to better use than gathering dust and install some linux on it! I have a home network and have never got round to buying a router for it, instead relying on pc to share the internet connection. This started out many years ago with an old 486 running or should I say crawling Windows 98, but all it had to do was route the traffic and it did remarkably well. A few years on and a couple more PC's on the network this had to be replaced.
