The procedure you propose is overly complex and could cause problems,
given you'd need to load a CD driver. Better to make a bootable CD
containing nothing but a bootable floppy image, with all required files
included in the floppy image.
From there, it will work exactly the same way as using a real floppy -
except you won't be able to save the current BIOS first, which is always
However, if the system has a FAT partition on the hard drive(s), you can
save it there - in which case you could forget the CD and run the BIOS
update from DOS installed on the FAT partition.
