Silly Question.. Booting off of a floppy

Why can't i boot off my floppy? I'm trying to flash my AMI BIOS and i followed the directions (make MS DOS boot disk, add new BIOS, and BIOS Utility) Go to restart the system and it boots up normally. I'm curious if this is a XP thing cause i remember Win 95 if a floppy was left in you needed to eject before boot up. Honestly i think this is the first time i've used the floppy since installing XP. Any help would be great. I doubt i can flash from the command prompt in windows... right?

thanks

Ok. This may seem stupid but did you check your BIOS to see if the boot order was the floppy first? If not I would set it that way. If that doesn't work make sure the drive is plugged in.
