I'm pretty sure mine can only go to 8 + 32 MB. That's a vanilla 560,
not an E or X.

Go to www.pc.ibm.com and navigate down to the Thinkpad 560 page.
Choose "Downloadable Files" from the sidebar, and select type = BIOS.
There are good instructions on the web page, but basically, you
download a DOS executable from the IBM site, and run it on a DOS or
Windows machine (doesn't have to be your 560). When you run the
program, it prompts you to insert a diskette which it formats and
writes. Then you boot your 560 with that diskette.

Just make sure your ThinkPad is on AC power while doing the update.
