Unless you have a crippled version of Nero, it will let you burn ISO images. You don't need UltraISO. Just cancel the stupid wizard at startup and choose File/BurnImage from the main Nero window. > I also burnt CD's of the 2 flp images.

Nero lets you choose CDROM(boot) if you select File/New from the main menu. Just point it to the floppy image you want to burn and you are good to go.
