Actually, the autoupdater is supposed to work with LinuxBIOS too. But
you have to know how to make LinuxBIOS boot from a USB key. The way to
do that is to type the ESC key when you see the progress bar. That will
get you to a graphical menu. Use the arrow keys to select the picture
of a USB key, and it should boot the updater from the USB key.
The USB key will have to be formatted with an ext2 filesystem.
LinuxBIOS does not include FAT support.
