Firmware / BIOS Flashing

I've always used a DRDos bootdisk because it doesn't load any drivers that could cause a corupted flash. I haven't found any firmware or BIOS update that didn't have a DOS based flash program.

I wonder if you could write the floppy image (using dd) to a partition and then boot that partition with Grub using chainloader? But $20 for a usb floppy drive sounds pretty good!/IMHO

I may buy a floppy drive. You can use a bootable floppy image to make a bootable CD, but you need a floppy drive AFAIK Anyway, it's about time vendors sorted this out. Even Dell releases all of it's new BIOS upgrades as executables to be run from within the OS - pity the OS is just windows.
