Bootable ISO/memstick images for Linux, *BSD users?

Is there any plain download link for the ISO for update without access to MS-Windows or Mac OS X? The ZIP file does not contain any images, but just an unknown binary file.

 

Most people would want to perform a firmware upgrade before installing a system. And I don't even have MS-Windows or Mac OS X to upgrade after installation. A standard bootable ISO  (and additionally USB memstick image) download is the most useful form of distribution, in my opinion.

Re: Bootable ISO/memstick images for Linux, *BSD users?

This is the link that I have problems with. Download the firmware (with the blue button "download firmware") and unzip it. There is a binary dotfile with an ISO extension for Mac OS X that probably downloads the real ISO file. Real ISO files are a bit larger (a few MBs) and their size is most likely divisible by 2048.

 

I also tried to figure out the web links that are contained in this Macish "ISO" file, but I couldn't manage to download anything.

 

What I need is the real download link, directly for the ISO.

For what drive?

 

Note that the ISO files are bootable and therefore by defintion OS independent.

I downloaded the firmware ZIP file once again and unzipped it. I can see the ISO file now in the top directory. I don't know if it was added or if the __MACOSX directory and its contents have distracted me last time I downloaded it. Sorry, my fault.
