It seems superiotool output is completely useless (not your fault). The
Super I/O seems to be unsupported by superiotool. The manual says this
is a NS PC97317VUL Super I/O Chip. Datasheet is here:
(look for SID to find the identification data).

The block diagram in the board manual suggests that the flash chip is a
4 Mbit device directly attached to the ISA bus.

OK. The board has a "JP1 firmware write protect" jumper, so writing
would probably be impossible without opening the case.
It _is_ possible that this jumper also prevents probing, but I'm not so
sure about that.
