Dell building BIOS RPM/yum service

FYI (and perhaps not directly related to the problem at hand, and
certainly not to the Windows issue): DELL tried to do YUM repositories
for drivers and firmware (delivered as RPM), and has developed a YUM
plugin that gets the correct software based on the HW model. They
apparently also invested effort into making the firmware on all (server?
desktops?) upgradeable from under Linux. Nice effort.

Hope this helps
