I installed (single boot) Win2K on my Sony PCG-Z505SX.
Previously, I'd upgraded my BIOS to R0205Z0 as
recommended on the Sony support pages. After the
upgrade to Win2K, neither the Hotkey nor Notebook
Setup apps work - I suspect a BIOS problem, since
*some* of the sony support pages suggest I should
be running W2K02Z0 (though those might be outdated).

Three questions:
* Is the failure of Notebook Setup consistant with
a diagnosis of the wrong BIOS?
* What's the right bios to be running for Win2K on
a Z505SZ?
* How can I install a new BIOS? The recipe given
on the Sony web pages seems only to work under
