Creating a bootable CD/DVD in lieu of a bootable floppy

I'm trying to flash the BIOS on an ABIT AW8-MAX motherboard. Abit only provides a Windows based flash utility for older versions and I'm running Win 7 x64, so I have to use a bootable disc method to flash the BIOS.

The thing is that I don't have a floppy handy, and these instructions are for creating a bootable floppy. I know there is probably a way to make a bootable CD/DVD instead using these same instructions. Does anyone know? If so a step in the right direction would be appreciated.

Either buy or borrow a usb floppy drive or you can create a boot cd rom from a floppy with nero or easy cd creator. There are also many free options available online depending on your skill level.

The tutorial goes into more detail than required.  He choosed to save the image to an ISO file and then proceeds to test it in various ways.  You can just choose the Device option to make the CD rather than Image option he uses.

I used a DOS 3.3 boot image from allbootdisks.com and ImgBurn along w/ the BIOS .bin. We'll see if this works.
