DL360G3 5i Controller BIOS Update - how to do it without Windows?

We have Netware 6 on two G3s and I can't see a way of updating the SCSI controller BIOS. Is this possible without Windows?

Yes, you can flash the firmware on this controller, but the process is offline meaning you'll have to bring the server down.

Boot from one of the SmartStart 6.x versions - choose maintenance mode to upgrade the controller firmware.

If the image lives on the cd you can use it, or you can use the latest one you've downloaded to floppy.

The most recent image is available at: http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/17366.html

Cheers,
