I've got an old NEC Powermate workstation and would like to angrade the BIOS. Now this is simple enough on a Sun box, but on an x86 box, all the software seems to be written for Windoze. I've found a fairly up-to-date tutorial

but my problem is that it looks like I have to use a Windows tool to check the manyufacturers site for updates!!
The BIOS manufacturer's website http://www.phoenix.com/pages/bios-updat ... supportcom redirects to a 3rd party:
Now the problem with this is that I can't even find the version of BIOS I need, never mind install it. My current BIOS tells me that the version is:
Pheonix Award BIOS W6792VP2 V2.2 011904 09:36:32
Has anyone else had problems finding the BIOS update and managed to find a way of identifying it? I can live with the INSTALLING it bit, as I think that is achievable.
Many thanks for any help.
