  I think I'll go with the replacement ZIF socket as described by Bari.  I
had no idea it was that easy to remove a TSOP device, so that approach
never occured to me.

  I would consider another motherboard with socketed bios, but given the
price constraints I'm forced to work in (sub $100, NForce4), it seems that
most boards in that range have TSOP bioses.

  Also, I wanted to re-read the FAQ portions regarding flashing, but keep
receiving a "A database query syntax error has occurred" error when I click
on the FAQ link on the main LinuxBios.org website.  I could not find a
contact email (the help link was broken as well), so could one of you relay
a "FAQ is down" message to the website maintainer?
