has anyone tried to update their bios from debian or linux in general?
i've looked at these pages ->
and have downloaded the packages that they say to get, and have also downloaded the new bios from lenovo's website.
don't really want to turn my laptop into a brick, so i'm curious if anyone has done this before, and if so anything that i should worry, not worry about?
the lenovo site say to just click on the .exe, yet i don't know if it needs windows to do the install or not.
It's easy to do using WindowsXP Live cd, less than 593Mb Zip file download.
