I need to upgrade to the latest Phoenix BIOS for my Gateway 2000 Pentium PC.
The current BIOS is Phoenix version 1.00.07.DQ0T U. This is the latest according
to Gateway's website, and it's over THREE years old.

I need to upgrade so that my system can use all of a new 20.5 Gig hard drive I
just bought. The drive is from Western Digital, and it includes a BIOS utility
called EZ-BIOS. This utility does not work--the machine still only recognizes
8.4 Gigabytes of the 20.5 Gigabyte drive. Rather than use the Western Digital
BIOS I'll just upgrade the Phoenix BIOS to the latest revision.

Has anyone upgraded a Gateway machine like this, or upgraded this family of
Phoenix BIOS?

Thanks In Advance,
