Thank you. Is there a FAQ or HOWTO for how to flash like this or is it just
straightforward and easily picked up from the LinuxBIOS documentation?
Also I think I'd better have some option to get the old BIOS back,
especially if I'm going to ask ASUS how to do all this - otherwise their
likely answer will be "if you do this you break your board and we will not
fix it for you - you'll need to get a new one".
I don't know if there's some standard way to get a PC to "revert to factory
BIOS" with a key combination on bootup or something?

Yes, that is possible. However, Asus sometimes does
some weird stuff with
their SMbus, so it might not be possible to make a port for your
mainboard without some documentation from Asus.
