bios updates for Micronics C200

heya. I just got a new 153GB Deskstar (IBM) hdd. Great for installing some new linux distros!! Unfortunatly, the bios is abit out of date so cant cope with the large hdd size. so I thought, fine ill get the update from the motherboard manufacturer, Diamond multimedia (eep), like i had done with a nice abit motherboard. after a while of searching, it seems that the diamond support site is unavailable.All I find is a link to a press release detailing diamonds latest ownership. So, does anyone know where I can obtain the bios update for a *Micronics C200 motherboard* with *Ali Aladdin V chipset*, *award bios* bios string: 11/25/1998-ALADDIN5-2A5KKG5CC-00. (also suggestions for distros could be helpful ) thanks.
