Well, basically the m57sli refuses to see the chip built into the bios
savior.  I just flashed an image into another rom chip, and use that to boot
LB (keeping my backup original rom chip). I can't boot the m57sli from the
pm49fl004 chip in the biossavior, nor can flashrom see it when the switch is
set to RD1 instead of ORG.

The biossavior makes hot swapping a lot easier though, even if it does not
work as intended.
