please have a look on this report, the MCP73 should?? be supported but it isn't as it seems.
Here is the flashrom -V report:
flashrom v1.9.3-r1205 on Linux 3.1.0-rc4-git2 (i686), built with libpci 3.1.7, GCC 4.4.5, little endian […] Found chipset "NVIDIA MCP73", enabling flash write... chipset PCI ID is 10de:07d7, This chipset is not really supported yet. Guesswork... ISA/LPC bridge reg 0x8a contents: 0x40, bit 6 is 1, bit 5 is 0 Flash bus type is SPI SPI on this chipset is WIP. Write is unsupported!

Please upgrade to 0.9.4 (or later) and report back. It will still warn you, but i think it should actually work. Of course the mainboard might need a hack too, but you will be notified of that separately (if writing fails at address 0 and the content of the flash remains unchanged) and we will implement it then.
