I second using UNIFLASH.  A person can easily create a FreeDOS boot
cdrom incorporating UNIFLASH or booting UNIFLASH on another cdrom media.

However, I agree about incorporating flashrom into knoppix or, my
favorite, SystemRescueCD (it's Gentoo based ;-).

I don't know if Knoppix will integrate as it's more of a candy coated
cdrom, but I can almost guarentee the maintainer of SystemRescueCD would
integrate flashrom.  To ease integration, I was thinking about creating
an ebuild for LinuxBIOS or just Flashrom.
