    Is there a jumper on the Latitude CPi R-series laptops (exactly
    a Dell Latitude CPi R400GT) to protect firmware against accidental
    overwritting? I have not found anything on the service manual.

    Not an issue for me (I am running NetBSD on that machine, worms
    and virii are not a problem) but, as this machine is now EOL'd,
    and it has the most recent firmware release (A14), I think that
    protecting it will be a good idea.
