There's no fis command, because it's used for programming flash. And
PC's generally don't have user accessible flash areas.

On a PC you have to put your application image on a floppy disk or on
the hard disk. Alternatively, you can put RedBoot on the floppy/hard
disk, and use its scripting to automatically download the application
via ethernet on boot.
