You're welcome, again.

Yes, please install it. It would be nice to have a full output of:
By the way, I don't see your attachments, did you forget them (thats
what I usually do :)). Please post the put of all three
tools like I suggested to the mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org
that will help us with your board.
> Don't laugh... but I haven't used IRC chat before. Never had a reason to until now I guess. Is there a way to post the chats somewhere so that anyone with a similar problem can go there without taking up your time? hum...
Well, really, IRC is nothing magical or mystical. Just use any
IRC-capable software to connect (like irssi, pidgin, xchat or mIRC).
Set the server to irc.freenode.org and the channel to #flashrom. Then
just start asking questions and many people will
be happy to help you and answer all your questions.
> Also, did I get the syntax correct to force a write <./flashrom -f -w (filename) -c (chipname)>.
Yes, think so. Check the manpage.

Mhh, okey. Don't hesitate to post all your results to the mailing
list. Please post every laptop and mainboard
and whatever your try to flash in a single mail to the mailing list.
And seriously, join the IRC-channel. You'll learn alot of stuff there.
