    It is best not to update BIOS from any OS but from motherboard's tools (newer motherboards have it).

    It is best to update the BIOS from a floppy from dos mode. And it's even better not to update unless the update will fix some problems you encounter.
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;

    Honestly 80GB is not very big either. How old is this Mobo?

    Are you getting the update from the manufacturers web site?
