Right. You burn the BIOS update file --and maybe another file or two, don't quite remember-- to a CD ROM, pop that in your drive, hit F8, pick the CD ROM containing the BIOS cd and your on your way.

The ASUS boot menu saves you the trouble of having to change the order of the boot sequence to the first CD ROM, if it was not set as such already. I don't because the machine does not have to waste time checking the CD ROM every time between reboots or hibernate. That and having quick boot in the BIOS enabled results in getting the machine up just a little quicker.
