You need to put the file onto a floppy disk, and look in your motherboard manual to see what key to press when your computer POSTs.

You should follow the instuctions on the motherboard manufacturers website. Surely they have intructions? Usually you will have to do something like put the file onto a floppy, and rename it to change the extension or something, and then boot the computer and press Alt+F2 or something. It should tell you in the manual or on the website.

It doesn't have to be a bootable floppy I don't think.
