Hi I have just downloaded a bios firmware update for my laptop, but it assumes that I run windows: close all programs, execute whatever.exe and reboot. Is there some utility that will allow me to update the firmware running freebsd or temporarily boot in some windows emulated environment? Thanks, Erik -- Erik, 1) If you're using a laptop that supports booting from a USB device, you might temporarily install windows on a big, big thumb drive for the purposes of installing your bios update. 2) On the off chance that your update runs under DOS, you can get what you need to create a DOS boot disk from http://www.bootdisk.com/. 3) Bootdisk.com has other boot disk version up to Win XP. Heck, they're free to try.... 3) Sadly, there's no "Knoppix" version of Windows that boots from a CD but you could temporarily connect a hard disk as a worst case... Rich Mayo SRI International
