	I got a mailer from dell about a BIOS update for some specific 2550 
versions.  It was a problem with E?? manufactured between ? ? , upgrade 
to A56.  dmidecode only shows BIOS A06

Handle 0x0000
         DMI type 0, 20 bytes.
         BIOS Information Block
                 Vendor: Dell Computer Corporation
                 Version: A06
                 Release: 02/16/2001

I have a number of 2450/2550 servers.  How can I tell which servers need 
the update and which don't without physical access?

no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
