AFAIK, the base station can very well be used without any MacOS. The
java configurator works very well, and it also has provisions for
downloading firmware to the base (never tried that myself). You need to
extract it from Apple's released files, though.

As for the Airport cards, I know of no other way to upgrade their
firmware then under MacOS.
