This package updates the basic input/output system (BIOS) on IBM NetVista 2283, 6274, and 6596 systems.

BIOS is programming that controls low level hardware operations, including interactions with diskette drives, hard disk drives, and the keyboard. The BIOS is stored on a chip. Your computer uses flash BIOS, which can be updated through a program on a flash diskette so that you do not have to replace the BIOS chip to update the BIOS.

Note: Make note of any settings you have changed in theBIOS Configuration Utility. These settings may have to be reentered after updating the BIOS.

Print this file so that you can refer to it during the installation.
