Did this for a PE6300 last week - the BIOS and firmware had not been 
touched since the machine was bought in 1998.

For the PERC II controller you want a file named PERCU84.exe
There appears to be no way of navigating to this file on the
DELL web site. I managed to get it by going to the downloads 
area and then enter the filename in the search box.
