here is what I did: I don't have a floppy. So my problem was getting the
update running. I created the update floppy with an MS-DOS boot disk
from earlier days ;-))
Then, I pushed the update floppy into my desktop linux box and created a
bootable cd from it. Assuming /dev/fd0 is your floppy and dev=3D0,0,0 is
your cd-writer:
> dd if=3D/dev/fd0 of=3Dboot.img bs=3D10k count=3D144
> mkisofs -r -b boot/boot.img -c boot/boot.catalog -o bootcd.iso .
> cdrecord -v dev=3D0,0,0 speed=3D2 bootcd.iso=20
(adapted from http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Bootdisk-HOWTO/cd-roms.html, go
there for more information)
Then, I bootet from this cd and the bios update went smooth...
