I don't know if upgrading the LSI MPT card to version
will cause problems with external booting.  I do know that you can
PXE boot with the LSI MPT version at that level.  As for keeping
the all the firmware in sync, that is a concern but its a choice
of evils for us at the moment.  I would suggest not upgrading unless
you have a pressing need.
