Via EPIA-MII ROM speed?

How fast is the ROM chip MB/s.  In my case a SST 39SF020A 70-4C-NH.   I was
trying to figure out what would be faster... Linuxbios calling a 2.6 kernel
off the hard drive, or loading my 2.6 kernel out of the rom file. I have the
512k rom chips, so I have room to add my kernel.  If I put my kernel into
the rom, can I just call it as a payload?
