Hi John,

This .BIN file is for RedHat Linux. The firmware update app that contains
this package are for 32bit OS (you can run it  in 64bits OS by installing
the necessaries 32bit compatibility libraries). Using this tool:
https://github.com/demonccc/lnxDellRepo2deb you can create .deb packages
that contain 64bits version of the firmware tools and the latest firmware
versions recommended by Dell.
