Assuming you just want to flash the bios with a given rom image, go to 
freebios2/util/flash_and_burn/ and do make there. The resulting
flash_rom utility might help.

For detailed information how to build LinuxBIOS itself for a given platform,
see http://www.openbios.org/LinuxBIOS-AMD64.pdf

The SIS6x0 is not yet supported by the LinuxBIOS v2 tree yet. Which
means you cannot replace your motherboard bios with LinuxBIOS on those

> Openbios did not work for me, bios.ko had problems with my NIC.
