Hope this works out. :)

You could use a Windows 98 (or other Windows boot floppy) to boot and run
the flashing utility.  You can even boot up with your USB stick (has the
utilities) plugged in ( it should become C: ).

I'm sure you could find a Windows floppy image online or one of us would be
happy to send you a copy (it would be about the security/trust you can have
in freedos images anyways).

Once you have the image it's trivial to turn a floppy image into a bootable
ISO.  But it sounds as if you have floppies and a floppy drive.

I think the freedos bits I saw in the HP bios updating archive for my
system was for the "Crisis Recovery Disk".
