Default Upgrading Bios for evga 680i

Do I need a win98 boot disk in order to do this? Unfortunately it seems the only way to upgrade the bios is the old school floppy method. No via windows method (here in 2007).

Do I need a boot disk for a command prompt or is that included?

Anyone else upgrade to the P25 bios? My cpu is displaying 50C which I know isnt right, this bios claims to have a fix for incorrect temp readings via cpu, and to ease my mind (and the extra oc'ing announced) I'd like to give this an install.

I used the flash drive method to update my BIOS to P25 as well. It seemed to work just fine for me.
