Update Dell 2950 BIOS without Windows

I was helping a friend do P2V conversions of his older but still useful Dell 2950 servers, when I noticed the BIOS was version 2.2.6 and the latest BIOS available from Dell is 2.7.0. Unfortunately I had already finished the P2V migrations from Windows Server 2008 R2 and the servers were running ESXi 4.1. I was having limited success with booting a linux live CD and running the linux bin file when I stumbled upon this post. This man is a genius!
