I'm trying to flash my ami bios. Now, I don't have any disks nearby so I tried to do this using several bootable DOS cdroms.
Most of the time when I try to run the flash tool, I get the error "16M/DOS Not enough memory available" or "This is not a 16M DOS Application".

Any idea how to fix this ?

No, go to the OEM website for your MB.  Ensure you have the correct instructions/tools for flashing your BIOS.

Are the CD's "clean" boot disks (no config or other boot files), or running any programs?

Some CD's were, others had tools on them.
I fixed it using an image from www.bootdisk.com.
