CAUTION: This FTP Update is intended as a fast response for the problem
mentioned only. The risk inherent in this fast response is that there
is not enough time or resources available for the full regression testing
that is done for the Service Pack Updates and there is a higher risk of
introducing new problems. It is recommended that customers always install
the latest Service Pack Update, but only install FTP Updates when needed to
resolve specific issues.

NOTE: This FTP Update is only compatible with an A1.5i/F1.5i system that
have Service Pack 2 installed..
