Use a boot image of a windows boot disk (with CD drivers), then load that as the boot part of the CD.
Then just put the BIOS image & flasher ont the CD like a regular file.

www.bootdisk.com for good bootdisks (win98 SE no ramdrive recommended)

Yea flash from windows, something I'll never do. All hail the floppy for it's last use (bootCD's as shown still aren't the same).

My bet is on USB Pendrives.

nah, floppy is unreliable

i just create a boot disk with a floppy or cd and leave a partition on one of my hard disks in FAT. This way it is accessible from DOS. A lot safer to flash from, I already had one bad experience from a bad floppy .
