must be written to a bootable msdos floppy. or run thru a dos emu.

usually program is a 'self run' that flashes cmos chip with new bios.

you do need to be sure that you are using correct bios. if you do not, you
may not be able to boot with wrong bios. as for any damage, all i can say
is that times that i did flash a new bios, i knew it was correct one.



peace out.
