Sorry, I misinterpreted your misinterpretation. :) What I meant to say
by that BIOS programming isn't supported isn't that the MB isn't
capable, but that MSI doesn't provide the specs for the flash
programming interface, and that the BIOS programmer that comes with
LinuxBIOS doesn't support my flash chip.

Just wanted to clear that up.
