I would. You said you built your own device, but I'm not a poor student
(anymore). Could you guess which of the three on the mcmull page:
would be the closest to the schematic you used?

I'd certainly be willing to make a go of it. If I can dig it up, there
were some guys that wrote a parallel jtag interface to program amd
flash. Maybe it would be useful. That was several years ago and the site
seems lost in the annals of history now. Maybe you wrote that too :)
