Actually it will help. I have 2 kobian (P4M266a and P4M266v) boards 
using different sound chips and one with capability to boot from s
mart card (whatever that is). 
Inetrchanging the bios produced the additional boot capability. 
Everthing worked fine even under windose (which afaik uses the 
bios during runtime). Also buying boards might be a little easier.
And in any case it would not hurt.
