No, it was loaded, lsmod shows it there, I just didn't mention that I
had loaded it.
Are you running 64 bit or 32 bit ???
It seems that it is actually the program dellBiosUpdate which does not
like the .hdr file, I don't even have to try to update the firmware and
it complains (see below)
#lsmod | grep dell
dell_rbu 11168 0
#dellBiosUpdate -i -f bios.hdr
Header Length: 84
Header Major Ver: 2

WARNING: BIOS HDR file BIOS version appears to be less than or equal to
current BIOS version.
This may result in bad things happening!
