How to flash bios with no floppy driver or Windows Installation

I currently run a LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D and I have yet to Flash the BIOS and I am wondering how a Linux user might do this? I do not have a Floppy Driver and do not have access to a Windows machine. Is there a way to create for example, a small empty .img file and then use Wine to use the .exe file to write the necessary files to the empty .img file and then burn the .img file to a CD rather then load it on a disc? Or what else is suggested?

I would create a bootable DOS CD and copy the files needed for the BIOS flashing, do a google search on Bart's Way for help in creating this bootable DOS-CD and links for the DOS boot image.
