True, checked this a long time ago when curious if Ubuntu (Feisty?)
could mount the ancient 1.44 floppy driver. At that time it did. Thank
heavens boards doesn't need a floppy boot for BIOS upgrades anymore.
Anyway, no recent BIOS upgrade available for those ones that still
need. It is amazing what these pendrives (w/ Unetbootin) can actually
do. When I remember that my first hard drive had only 10 MBytes and
had to be (kind of) kick started to spin...
