I need to create a bootable floppy for my Win2K PC for a BIOS upgrade, but I've clean forgotten how, it's a switch with format isn't it?

Or you can use file mangler or explorer and it's a format option.

Forget it my floppy seems to be dead. Do you reckon I can flash bios from a bootable cd?

Not sure, are the leads plugged into the drive ok? If the CD doesn't work you may be able to use a memory stick. Last I tried anything like this it wanted to save the files direct to a floppy and I couldn't change the drive.
