One of my earlier messages to the list was from BIOS revision F3 from what I 
can tell (which matches pretty well with what I remember having).  I am 
currently on F8.

I may go back to F3 if I can get booting from USB to work just to verify 
because I could have sworn it was still broken after going to F8.  But since 
unpatched Linux apparently works fine and I'm not sure when exactly 
that happened (I use Ketchup to maintain the sources and somewhere it 
unpatched my forcedeth.c :) I want to double-check that a simple BIOS upgrade 
will solve it.

But I also don't have a lot of time before I go underway for a few months. :-/
