Thank you -- your comment made me check the Dell website and I now see 
the A20 BIOS update released by Dell in January 2010.

I'm trying to figure out how to get FreeDOS to see my CD drive so I can 
do the BIOS update from within FreeDOS. It says it cannot open client 
CD-ROM device driver "FDCD0000" and SHCDX33A cannot load.
