Anything that will provide you with a DOS environment should work as
long as the update file can be accessed from it. This shows up the
stupidity of providing PCs without a floppy drive as standard (the Dell
site actually suggests using the floppy drive!) and, instead, providing
useless card readers. You may find it worthwhile to take the card reader
out and put a floppy drive in its place.
