Thanks for your reply. The chip in question (SST49LF020A in PLCC) only
supports LPC and parallel programming. Do you think it would be
feasible to purchase another device (they come at about 10 euros) and
hot-swap the ROM for reflashing if something went wrong?
Alternatively, any hints for 'pulling out' the LPC interface from
another device? Sorry if my questions are a bit elementary.

I'll be sure to take a look at that.
