Use the command prompt or use your XP cd to get into DOS.

If you create Windows 95 Boot disk you can get into DOS through that. You can get a Windows 95 Boot disk image/creator on the web just do a search in google.

or you can create a FAT/FAT16 partition and install DOS on it, create an NTFS partition and install windows on that, fat cant recognize NTFS so voila, happy dosing.

Wait, so you want to flash your BIOS? Most BIOS downloads come with a program that makes a boot disk to use. If they dont, google Windows 98 boot disk. That should get you a download to make a bootable floppy. As for those of you saying he should use a CMD prompet, he needs to not be in Windows to flash his BIOS.
