yes but it's not bootable.  Having to install an OS to update your 
firmware seems backwards considering you can make a bootable dos cd for 
firmware updates on desktop systems.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
