This option does require that your computer has a CD-Writer, blank disc, and that the CD-Writer has the capability of creating bootable CDs.Many CD-Writers have this capability, as do the CD creation software programs.

One more thing: it turns out that my new floppy drive is junk.
Thus we arrive at tonight’s problem: Disclaimer: This recipe worked fine for me, but might not for you.
This post is primarily focused on Fruitbat because he posted the link which has taken me to this point in my saga but anyone is welcome to join in especially if they have a knowledge of Dos.
Fruitbat, I followed the instructions in the link you posted and successfully booted from CD and while in Dos told the computer to open the BIOSUPDATE. I then got a long list of type which appeared to be lots of instructions for example "update microcode". After a while I tried typing 'yes' but it just moved to the next line: nothing happened.
Having done that the file read as follows: @echo off cls ver/d echo. BIOFLASH/Auto : END That is it nothing more, nothing less.
echo Flash First BIOs update Diskette echo System BIOS echo V5.00 R1.
It may be that Dell only maintains this repository for computers on which they support Linux. Some Dell flash updaters that run in windows will run in DOS also, but may not fit on a DOS floppy image converted to CD.
Tonight while building a new workstation, I needed to update the BIOS on the motherboard, a Tyan Tomcat K8E.
I have no floppy drive available, and looking around the Dell linux firmware tools pages shows that my model (System ID: If it's a DOS based installer, you can use an Boot CD instead - the CD just needs to have DOS booting on it. Otherwise, if it's a Windows based installer, I would suggest creating a Win PE/Bart PE boot CD and installing off a flash drive (Win PE/Bart PE Flash drive should also work).
If you are not using Windows for idealogical reasons, you may want to look at Free Dos rather than Microsoft based solutions (you may want to look at it anyway, of course).
