Flashing Intel (L440GX) BIOS

With lots of assistance from Ron Minnich, I've been able to patch a
2.4.20 kernel with the LinuxBIOS extensions and successfully compile and
boot from it. I've also succeeded in compiling a romimage for the Intel
I've downloaded Intel's latest System Update Package -- lsup2_0.exe --
for the L440GX motherboard.
My question is about what to do with what I've now got. That is, how do
I get this romimage onto my motherboard(s)?
Running lsup2_0.exe on a Windows system gives me, among other things, a
BIOS directory. This directory contains BAT files, README and RELNOTES,
BIOS files, and their IFLASH.EXE utility.
The 1.BAT file invokes:
IFLASH.EXE /P P14-0133.BIO /R
in which I assume /P gives the file to load (or the first file in a
group of files to load), and /R reboots afterward... or not ;-)
Since I don't want to install Intel's newer BIOS, but do want to install
the LinuxBIOS I compiled, what do I do, from here?
Any pointers to previous threads about flashing L440GX BIOS?
