Vach, you have to make a bootable DOS floppy to do your flash
properly. Ideally you want a floppy formatted on a Windows 98 system
as: format /s. After you get your boot disk you need to copy your
download 2.08 to it and run it if it is an executable which will give
you your flash program and a .bin file. After you've done all that put
the floppy in your
A: drive and reboot the machine. It will boot in DOS mode, at that
point type your flash program name (I'm not sure what yours is) but
that will begin the flashing program. DO NOT turn your machine off
during the flashing process!! After it's finished you should remove
the floppy and reboot your machine. All of the different bioses I've
flashed tell you to reboot into the CMOS setup and select BIOS
DEFAULTS and save. Then you need to go back thru the CMOS setup and
restore your original settings. Maybe you outght to boot into your
CMOS setup before you do anything and copy all the settings so you can
restore them, okay??
