Dell D600 and 600M with bios rev. X01 & X04 - how to upd

I have a couple of Dell laptops with early bios versions, possibly (probably) prototype versions of the D600 and 600M models. They have bios versions X01 and X04, and I'd like to update the bios on these machines to something close to current revisions.
