It's similar to a Dell Inspiron 5000e (I suspect it's made by the same
folks).  http://www.catwhisker.org/~david/FreeBSD/laptop.html for more
detail than folks are likely to want (though it does include a link to a
floppy image that I used to update the BIOS; note that said BIOS claims
to be for either my (type of) machine or a Dell Inspiron 5000e).

Curiouser and curiouser....
