HP Surestore Dat40i - C5683A Firmware Bios

I am trying flash the bios for my 40gb tape drive and I am running a netware environment. How do I go about flashing the bios for the new firmware. I have downloaded the .frm file with C105 (I believe) and the Library and Tape tools. Any help on this would be GREATLY appreciated.

We don't have a version of Library & Tape Tools running on Netware (at least not yet).

Can you move the drive over to a SCSI card on a Windows system (98/ME/2K/XP)?

If so, then you can run HP L&TT and flash the firmware there, and then move the drive back to your Netware box.
The journey IS the reward.

Unfortunately no, we use a NetServer LH 3 which holds the tape drive. Now I can get myself to a dos prompt on the LH 3. Is there a way I flash the bios from the prompt? If so how would I go about doing so?

if you havent already found it, there is a dos utility at HP site (software of dat40i - very easy to find it).
If you dont find it mail me at e-mail@bsm.gr to send it to you
