*Hi Stephan*

Thanks for the reply. And sorry  about the mix-up!!

I have now downloaded 'flashrom-0.9.3.tar.bz2' and the GPG Sig File (as 
a text file). They are in my 'Downloads' Folder.

Am I correct to say that I should now create a Folder called' /flashrom' 
move the two files into it, unpack the 'bz2' file and then run -

$*svn co svn://coreboot.org/flashrom/trunk flashrom*
$*cd flashrom*
$*sudo make install*

I would then run the 'flashrom -V' again and sent the output to you?
