Is there an easy way to reflash the BIOS on a Inspiron board?

Is there an easy way to reflash the BIOS on a Inspiron board?

I recently picked up this Vostro 200 as a scrap system. Since I am testing it as a candidate for a future guide I want to test it and avoid a bad system partway through since I will never get the time back and it will delay things worse then not having hardware. I was mainly testing it to find any serious issues that will be a total gotcha.

"1) Try using RUFUS to create a dos bootable thumb drive and flash via DOS.

2) There is a linux utility from Dell that allows you to update/change the service tags IIRC."
