From the digg story:

This BIOS is ONLY for use with Windows Vista. Please do not install this BIOS for use with Windows XP, or other Windows versions. and who cares about something known as Linux!

Read the complete story here.

Boy I hate this kind of problem. Why on the earth they are locking down end users? Why make Windows Vista only bios? Please avoid both Toshiba and phoenix.
