Floppy to flash a BIOS? Really?

Funny how I've flashed the BIOS on my HDD, CD-RW, motherboard; and flashed region cracked firmware to my DVD... all from CD.

FreeDOS, dump the BIOS images, flasher, whatever onto the disc. Only problem is flashing the firmware on the drive you're booting from - but all my desktops have two drives...
