You can do it by CD or floppy or direct from Windows using Winflash:

There's a flashing utlity from the PCChips website and a flashing tutorial as well:

Just double check this is your board though before continuing.

You need a flashing utility to flash the BIOS to the motherboard.
What is the BIOS? (Award/AMI)

If you're sure that the bios from your first link is correct, then you just need to use the flashing utlity from the PCChips website with that bios.
If you're not sure, then i'd suggect confirming with the manufacturer

EDIT: Just reading from the first link, it states it's fine with your board, so I'd go with that
