Flashing the BIOS from Linux (Phoenix BIOS)

I haven’t looked at the BIOS on my ageing ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard for ages – in fact not since I switched it fully to Linux – so how do you update the Phoenix BIOS without DOS or Windows? I don’t bother with a floppy disk any more and creating a DOS boot CD just for this once every x years job is a faff!

Well there is an article here that might help.

Hmm, apparently that article doesn’t really help – except that it tells you ways to create custom bootable CD’s containing DOS, the BIOS updater and the BIOS file. Ho hum, I guess I’ll get round to it soon as I am looking to put a dual core Athlon in the PC which requires a new BIOS.
