Don't mean to bug you or anything, but I've got a couple more questions,
if you have the time: did you have to do anything with the southbridge
code, or is that all set? And did you start from scratch, or modify the
code that was already there?

And a final question for anyone, if I were to do a flash and it not go
well, do failsafes like key combonations to pull a bios off a floppy
still work, or are those stored in the BIOS?
