Subject: Re: [svlug] Creating a bootable CD from Linux to reflash your BIOS

Hi again,

One additional item to make life easier:

Step 6.5. Create a DOS batch file called flash.bat:

cat > /mnt/flash.bat <<EOF
@echo off
if "%1"=="" goto nada

:flash_it
phlash16 /mfg /mode=3 /s /x %1
goto deend

:nada
echo Dude, give me something to work with!

:deend
EOF

Now, the flash utilities depend on the type of MOBO you have and its BIOS.
Mine are specific to Phoenix BIOSes. Also, the flash.bat file is a
cut-down/modified version of one I got from BIOS upgrade ZIP file.

Regards
