Flashing bios using a usb drive

If you are like me where most PC run's linux and has no optical drive.  I saw the following steps around the net to be helpful.
  1. Get the bios update iso
  2. Get 'geteltorito' and extract the boot image from the iso
    $ wget ''
    $ perl biosupdate.iso > biosupdate.img
  3. Copy the image to the usb thumdrive
  4. $ sudo dd if=biosupdate.img of=/dev/usbthumdrive bs=512K
