Hi again,

One additional item to make life easier:

Step 6.5. Create a DOS batch file called flash.bat:

cat > /mnt/flash.bat <<EOF
@echo off
if "%1"=="" goto nada

phlash16 /mfg /mode=3 /s /x %1
goto deend

echo Dude, give me something to work with!


Now, the flash utilities depend on the type of MOBO you have and its BIOS.
Mine are specific to Phoenix BIOSes. Also, the flash.bat file is a
cut-down/modified version of one I got from BIOS upgrade ZIP file.
