[ltp] BIOS Update Q

I received a message during an update that my machine, a ThinkPad 600E
(2645-4BU) had an old BIOS version (1999). I went to the IBM web site, and
downloaded the latest BIOS, version 1.16 (INET36WW), and on the page, it
shows a release date of "2001/10/12". I went and performed the update, but
when I initialized it after the flash, it shows that my BIOS is dated in
1999. Returning to IBM's site, it shows all flash versions from 1.11
(INET31WW) through 1.16 (INET36WW) as having a BIOS date of Nov. 20, 1999.

Does this match with what other 600 owners have? Thanks.
