Award BIOS Upgrade Fees - Slightly Offtopic

I just encountered what I consider to be a totally outrageous problem.
I've got a system with a BIOS issue.  The motherboard maker has decided
to use Award's BIOS and they want a minimum of $39.95 to email me the
BIOS update that I need to fix the system.  


I thought I post here, even though it's a bit off topic to see if any of
you have encountered anything similar and to see what you've done to
resolve the issue.


The system in question is loaded with FreeBSD.
