Need help flashing firmware

I got in on the popular philips 8x/4x/32x deal and am having some problems burning CD's now. I've read that the firmware for the drive need to be updated and I know where the update can be found. How do I go about actually updating it though? Any help would be appreciated.

Included in the archive with the new firmware should be a utility that performs the upgrade along with a text file with instructions. If they're not there, then they should be available from the same place where the firmware is downloaded.

Sometimes the utility needs to be run from a DOS prompt (not a full screen DOS session in Windows) so you may need a DOS boot floppy.
