BIOS Flashing with a CD instead of a floppy

I follwed the instructions in the Motherboard Flash Boot CD from Linux Mini HOWTO.

* mount -t vfat -o loop FLOPPY.IMG /mnt
* df /mnt # check free space
* rm /mnt/qbasic.* # make some space
* cp FLASHPGM.EXE FLASHROM.BIN /mnt
* umount /mnt

* mkdir /tmp/bootcd # temporary directory for CD image
* cp FLOPPY.IMG /tmp/bootcd/ # add floopy image to CD root
* mkisofs -r -b FLOPPY.IMG -c boot.cat -o /tmp/bootcd.iso /tmp/bootcd
* cdrecord dev=X,Y,Z /tmp/bootcd.iso
* rm -r /tmp/bootcd # cleanup temporary files
* rm /tmp/bootcd.iso
