  Is anyone able to update the bios via the dellBiosUpdate utility?  I
done the following:

- run "/usr/bin/dellBiosUpdate -u  --hdr newbios.hdr"
Fails to update at boot

- run "/usr/bin/dellBiosUpdate -u  -force_mono --hdr newbios.hdr"
Command fails to find enough contigous memory

- reboot to single user mode "/usr/bin/dellBiosUpdate -u  -force_mono
--hdr newbios.hdr"
Fails to update at boot

- reboot with "init=/bin/bash mem=100M" and run "/usr/bin/dellBiosUpdate
-u  -force_mono --hdr newbios.hdr"
Fails to update at boot

 reboot with "init=/bin/bash mem=100M" and run "/usr/bin/dellBiosUpdate
-u  --hdr newbios.hdr"
Fails to update at boot

I'm running the latest libsmbios-0.13.5-1.el4.
