Big PS there. :)

TopMAX lists support for "Flash EPROM  256 Kbit to 32 Mbit 28Fxxx,
29Fxxx, 29Cxxx, 29BVxxx, 29LVxxx, 29Wxxx,  49Fxxx series(2.7, 3.3,
5.0, or 12 Volt)" so your LF may also be supported.

If you have a PLCC adapter for the programmer and the TopMAX software
running on another system you're all set. If not, I guess your
options are to build a DIP->PLCC adapter yourself or make flashrom
work on your Abit board. The former is easy enough if TopMAX are
communicative, the latter may be easy if Abit haven't done any tricks
when connecting the flash chip to the chipset. (Some board makers
connect the flash write signals to random GPIO pins and don't tell
anyone which..)
