thank you for the great tool it saved me from messing ouround with DOS boot dics etc on a system which is purely running on Linux.
I updated the bios of this board and in case the diagnostic output of this board is interesting for you, here is it:
juergen@media:/scratch/software/bios$ sudo flashrom
[sudo] password for juergen:
flashrom v0.9.5.2-r1517 on Linux 3.2.0-25-generic (x86_64), built with libpci 3.1.8, GCC 4.6.3, little endian
flashrom is free software, get the source code at http://www.flashrom.org
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
Found chipset "NVIDIA MCP67". Enabling flash write... This chipset is not really supported yet. Guesswork...
SPI on this chipset is WIP. Please report any success or failure by mailing us the verbose output to flashrom(a)flashrom.org, thanks!
Mapping NVIDIA MCP6x SPI at 0xfec80000, unaligned size 0x544.
Please send the output of "flashrom -V" to flashrom(a)flashrom.org with
your board name: flashrom -V as the subject to help us finish support for your
Found Macronix flash chip "MX25L8005" (1024 kB, SPI) at physical address 0xfff00000.

I had a quick and probably dumb question, where in 'make' can I change the
parameters so flashrom will compile as a static or stand alone binary? I
found an old email where Gianluigi Tiesi says(
http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg05104.html) to add
-static to the end of the cc list in his example but I cannot find anything
that resembles it in the current make file. I looked at the instructions
for the DOS compile but I was not sure if I needed to use this method and
if I could even add all the lib headers required to run flashrom. I am
trying to run flashrom on a thin client so I can install an updated version
of Linux. Right now they only run a custom Linux build that uses a 2.4
kernel and I would like to have the system open to run an updated kernel
and software. I do believe a bootstrap or lilo configuration is in place
but I will not know for sure to modify it until I have the ability to read
and write to the bios. It would be great if this program was more
standalone centric since a full blown os is not always available.
So some pointers or advice would be awesome, thanks in advance!

Vladimir Serbinenko (phcoder) gave me his Power Mac, and I hope to test
flashrom on it soon.
