I thank you for taking the time to respond. I have been looking into the Live CD route.

I am certainly no programmer, I require a windows executable of flashrom but can find it nowhere (for the EON EN29F1010 chip). I've search and searched, but the results are always patches. I have no idea what to do with a patch. Your name appears everywhere when searching, so I thought I might drop you a line as see if you could help. If not I'll resort to a linux install, but that seems like overkill for my need to flash one chip.
Unfortunately, there are no Windows executables available to the public yet and I don't expect this to change in the next few weeks (someone would have to update the patches, merge them, test the result, then make Windows executables available to the public).
The next best offer is a DOS executable (which won't run under Windows, but at least it will run under DOS). It is available for download, but there is a crucial limitation which may affect flashing, so it is not totally endorsed yet. We're in the process of testing a fix for said limitation, and will be releasing updated DOS binaries shortly.
As an alternative, there are Linux Live CDs which contain flashrom, so you can avoid installing Linux (just run it from CD) and still use flashrom.
I hope this information helps.
