Question how do you display the Firmware Virsion of the System?

I am running RHEL 2.1 and am wondering how to display the Firmware Version of the system
without rebooting. I know I can display it via rebooting and going into the BIOS etc, but I thought
there was a way to display it via a command and or a grep.

Heck of a question, I would start by visiting the linux assembly folks.

Is this what you're looking for? In your shell type: uname -r
