It is an older Version
-V seems to have no effect

chipset cs5530
flash part is W29C020C

Verify fails, write seems done right read also. But I have get corrupted 

"uniflash" works fine for me, but I will test the latest flashrom from 
svn and see what happens.

Yes it starts with 55aa and there is a text like:

IBM Compatiple PCI VGA/SVGA Vesa Bios V1.0

Well, ok not really hard. Not all is readonly, but the main system runs 
out of the RAM and at the moment I use a kernel where is serial output 
disabled ;)

I have piped the output to a file, which is very large and I think it is 
not useful to attach the whole file. Also this try seems successfuller, 
because of the screen goes black and sometimes it flickers.
<ctrl>c stops testbios normaly.

I only post the interesting parts.

What config Options should I use, if I want LB starts with this Bios.
