I have a PE1650 running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (Update 1), the 
Adaptec PERC3/Di controller's firmware version is 2.7.0.

Should I upgrade it to version 2.8.0?

Is the floppy drive method the only way to upgrade it?

I connect to the server remotely and I would like to find a way to 
upgrade the firmware without going onsite.

I've access to a KVM-over-IP switch (keyboard, mouse and video) 
connected to the server.
