I am upgrading to my P520 to Technology Level 5 this weekend on AIX 5.3.  I have never installed any updates or anything on this server, so it's at 5.3.00 and has never had any firmware updates installed.  I was told I should update the firmware first.  So I downloaded System Firmware SF240_284 (9111-520) - RPM  and now I need to install it.  I can't find any directions for doing this.  I can find instructions on "permanently" installing it, but that's after it's had a "temporary" install done.  So, how do you initially install this thing?  Please help!  Thanks!
