    It depends on what version date you have on it, since it is a flashable bios.. If you find a drive it doesn't support you should be able to flash it. Newest is from Oct 2002 here:

    but I wouldn't flash it unless you definately had too. Better find out the model of your motherboard as well since the manufaturer may have made a few changes to the generic bios.
