Here's what I'm imagining a table would look like (these values are probably

| SST 49LF004                 |  512K  |  3.3V |
|  Winbond W39V080A     | 1024K |  3.3V |
|  PMC 49LF004               | 512K   |  3.3V |

* Yellow: FWH Blue: FWH Green: LPC/FWH

The mainboard page lists the flash part, say SST49LF004, and that's a link
to the PLCC table. It may also say something along the lines of "only
supports up to 2Mb/512K flash parts." To cross reference, you find a chip of
the same voltage and color in the table, or a "green" chip should work for
either FWH or LPC. Where's the data duplication?
