You should be able to boot with either onboard video or a pci card and then reflash the bios.

If you download ATIFlash from here:
http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/187
Then add this to your floppy and rename the bios to "backup.bin" without the ".
Then open notepad and type in
@echo off
cls
atiflash -f -p 0 backup.bin
and save as autoexec.bat. Then add this to your floppy, reboot and this should flash the bios for you blind and automatically so you don't need a pci card.

Is your first boot device the floppy drive? If so, try a PCI card so that you're not doing it blind. Just hope you haven't made a paperweight out of it


EDIT: Also, forgot to add that the floppy disk should be a bootable one. If it's not already, make this via "My Computer", then add your bios, ATIFlash and the Autoexec.bat file.
