Ever have to update a system but don't have a Floppy Drive

Have you ever run into the situation where you needed to update a system BIOS and could not because your system did not have a floppy drive?   Well, this recently happened to me. I started searching the Web for some ingenius tool that could help and found a package called BootCd from Bart at http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd .  This package allowed me to create a bootable CD for Dos and with that CD, I could boot the system and run the BIOS Flash program.  

Anyway, since this package help me so much, I thought that I would point it out.  Thanks Bart!!

"What about USB?"
Wasting a CD on something like a DOS-image and a BIOS-file? Why not boot from your USB-stick? (Everyone has got one, right?)

Todays floppy-less computers will allow you to boot from USB and most USB-sticks can emulate both floppy and harddrive - no hassle with creating CDs.
