BIOS updates using Ubuntu

This question is not answered

I have a Dell Vostro V13 with Ubuntu preinstalled (I've upgraded to version 11.04).

I would like to upgrade my BIOS to a newer firmware, but there seems to be no option to do that since Dell.com only provides a Windows executable file.

Obviously, using the FreeDOS floppy disk option is impossible too.
