What are the chances of getting firmware update tools on the same CD.
Similar to the SNAP CDs from a couple years ago.  The SNAP CDs were the
ticket.  Update BIOS, ESM, scsi controller/PERC BIOS, hard disk
firmware, backplane firmware, all at once from one bootable CD.  

( or bring back the SNAP CDs :)

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
