    SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.6.13-rc6] dcdbas: add Dell Systems Management Base Driver with sysfs support
    From
    Date
    Please download libsmbios 0.10.0-beta1 and send the "dumpCmos" output
    from your machine. Please send it to the libsmbios devel mailing list.
    >From that output, I can tell you if this token is available on that
    machine. If that token is available, then yes, you can set that feature.

    libsmbios can be obtained from http://linux.dell.com/libsmbios/main/

    dumpCmos is part of "make minimal", so you don't need any other libs
    present to compile. It is found under bins/output/ after compile.
    (alternatively, install the libs and bins rpms)
