Attached is the output from "flashrom -V" as

I backed up the running BIOS with AFUDOS and flashrom getting different
sum values under fedora 18.
$ sum *.ROM
19558 4096 SGIBIOS.ROM
$ sum *.rom
16753 4096 MX25L3205A.rom
That's normal nowadays if the computer is rebooted in between reads.
The firmware uses the flash as persistent storage for variables and
I'm getting ready to flash over the SGI BIOS with
the latest Supermicro
and I'm worried about using flashrom instead of AFUDOS.
Let me know if anyone is interested in helping my efforts.
Probably too late, but I don't see any problems in the log that would
discourage from using flashrom. Just keep a backup to be safe.
