No, BIOS update will follow a different path. You need to download the BIOS package and need to be run from your OS. The DRAC5 web update is for that device only. 
Serial console redirection is supported on DRAC5

Hi Chris,
thanks for the advice! Well, I've been able to solve the issue now, it was an issue with the Safari browser not showing me the "Update" link. I tried again with Firefox, and now the update went through without any problems. But where can I get these update DVD's from anyways? Can I also use them to perform BIOS updates etc? Do they support serial console redirection?
