Updating BIOS under Linux (Ubuntu)

I have a T41 that I've recently installed Ubuntu 7.10 on... I'm running into some issues with the wireless networking and USB.  Other forums have suggested that updating the BIOS and Embedded Chipset are my next option.  Unfortunately, I can only find the install scripts for Windows-based machines... Can anyone tell me where I can find instructions and tools to do the update?

Re: Updating BIOS under Linux (Ubuntu)

if you go to the driver matrice for t41 and select the bios update, scroll down to Additional Information you will see "Use the links below to obtain the BIOS and Embedded Controller files in other file formats". The files are available for floppy and some for cd.

Andy,
     No luck finding any section labeled 'Additional Info...' or otherwise pointing me in a direction that would get me to the info... Unless I'm just not seeing it...

Re: Updating BIOS under Linux (Ubuntu)

If you click, for example, the bios update link, you will arrive here where you will see under the download file link - Additional Information.
