You don't need XP do do the BIOS upgrade. There are recent threads here about building a bootable USB bios updater if you have access to some windows box somewhere.

It can also be done from a bootable linux distro but that's a second choice.
As to the install, without question you should buy SL for 29$ and follow mechdrew's guide that best suits the resources you have.
