firmware upgrades under Linux
I have just installed the Debian Sarge RC3 into my new computer (which does NOT have any bundled OS or software). I really CANNOT afford the M*Shit Win XP.
However many firmware upgrade programs provided by the manufacturers are only produced for M*Shit Windows for my DVD-RW
or DOS for the BIOS of my motherboard
For DOS flash upgrade utilities, is it safe to use FreeDOS or OpenDOS?
For flash uograde utilities written for Windows, how can I safely upgrade the firmware under Linux WITHOUT using the M*Shit Windows?
Thanks for your help!
