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.

Also unnecessary. 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.
