I'm playing with a little board linked to my laptop through the serial port.
I discovered that I could update the board BIOS using the XMODEM protocol to
upload the new version.
I've installed the comms/lrzsz port and I've read its man page. I've also read
the cu man page, but it's not clear to me how I can use the serial console to
enter the BIOS setup and, after that, use XMODEM to send the new BIOS.
Any suggestion ?
