I'm sorry but I won't be able to check the details of that until Sunday 
when the machine will (hopefully) be returned to me. It's currently on 
loan to a friend who is planning to get a new (or used, rather) computer 
in the next few weeks, and I'm trying to get her to skip Windows in 
favor of Ubuntu. She's a law student, and generally a basic computer 
user. I'll report the results of my experiment on Sunday :)  I can, 
however, tell you that I purchased the machine in December 2000, and 
have never updated the BIOS.
