I have made an image of a dos bootfloppy just so I don't have to hunt around for one when the inevitable floppy failure occurs. You can get it here
if you want once downloaded use dd if=dosboot.img of=/dev/fd0
which will write it too the floppy all you should have to do is copy the bios.bin and flash.exe files to it and boot. Sometimes you only need the bios.bin file on the floppy if your motherboard supports flashing the bios itself as an option when booting/in the bios screen, a lot of the newer boards do this.
