Need to update the BIOS of some Linux-based (CentOS 5.2 with the 18.104.22.168 kernel) PCs. The chipset is NVIDIA MCP51.

We need to update the BIOS on several Linux PCs (CentOS 5.2 with 22.214.171.124 kernel). We found several links on the web describing how to accomplish this by creating a bootable USB flash stick or CD/DVD. The boot hangs at the point were DOS starting up. The BIOS is Award V6.00 PG (very old) on a GigaByte AMD-based motherboard. The version of QFlash employed by the BIOS is pretty old too and will not read USB flash sticks (it wants a floppy which none of our mediaport PCs have installed). Please help!!! Thanks in advance.
