For flashing BIOS, H8 or firmware,you should be able to use any Win9x boot disk, as the instructions are not passed through the OS, just the hardware level. I have seen some firmware updates that use Linux, but normally they are on a bootable CD. XP lacks setup support from DOS but an instalation disk is here:

Generic and some specialized Boot Disks are linked to mirrors here:

Hope it clarifies matters.
