try hwinfo --bios

Thanks for posting that, Ed - I wasn't aware of it until now. I just tried it
on my laptop, and found out a LOT of interesting information about its BIOS.

And I think it will also answer Roger's question, depending on how much
information he needs "type" to contain.

Now I'm off to check on what other arguments, besides --bios, are available.
