SiS630 flash_rom & various flash parts

As far as I understand, it's you, Ollie, who wrote that flash_rom
program? My SiS630e board (pcchips m787cl+) has an EON EN29F002NT
flash part on it and I also have a spare old 1Mbit SST29EE010 part.
I saw the program supports SST29EE020... I thought (just an
assumption) that SST29EE010 may be similar to SST29EE020 in all but
the size, so I patched your program a little (added a record to the
flashchips array and also added some #define's to flash.h) so it
agreed to flash my spare chip. Unfortunately it didn't work. The
flash_rom pretends to work, but quits after "Verifying 0x00000001".
The board doesn't boot and when I place the EON part back in place,
the board's CMOS turns out to be ruined.
Can you imlement a correct support for SST29EE010 please? It has a
sufficient size to put a linuxbios in there, so I'd like to use that
part if possible. I hope it is electrically compatible with the
SST29EE020 and EON EN29F002NT?
I tried to find any of the parts you supports in local stores, but
didn't find anything from that list that would suit my motherboard
(I need a DIP32 chip). :(
With best regards,
