I do not have experience with the DL580G5 however we do have several
DL360G5 and DL380G5 units and the firmware upgrade should be a piece
of cake:

1. Download the Firmware CD.

2. Burn it to disk.

3. Boot from the CD.

4. Answer a few questions and let it do its thing.

5. Bobs your uncle you are done.

It should not matter what the current firmware is.
