To the best of my knowledge, we ship the tool, but not the microcode.
I recall suggesting to our packaging folks that we should do the
debian thing and have a script that runs off and fetches it from

I'll find out when I get back from .de next week, as I've got to
finish the install of my quad ppro 8-)
