Boot disk for Bios Flash

I am considering a larger HDD drive but will need to upgrade the bios.
The instructions from the manufacturer's site (QDI) say 'Prepare a DOS 6.2x bootable disk (or windows 95/98 bootable disk) and don't include any AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS file'.
Can I create a boot disk (from Win ME) and remove these files? Or how do I create a DOS 6.2x disk?
(Norton Ghost creates PC DOS - is this any use?) This is not one I want to get wrong.

Put a floppy disc in comp, In explorer right click on floppy disc choose format, then choose copy system files. That creates your boot disc, then you copy the flash utility and the flash file you downloaded to the same floppy disc that is now ready to flash your drive

Thanks Woodchip. Problem solved.

PS it looks like if you cannot make a simple Dos disc then you would do well to let someone else flash you bios as you can destroy you motherboard if done wrong
