I'm in the same situation...I'm looking for them both for the P2-99 (NOT
P2B that it was supposed to be, dammit) that I'll be getting soon from
fleabay, and the Slot A board that I'm working on now, and possibly even
my Intel i815 board once I've messed around with (and messed up) the
Slot A. The only local store that might have such a thing pissed me off
last time I was in there, so I've turned to the net, but it seems most
suppliers are interested in orders larger than 4 chips (2 for each
board). Did manage to find out that FrozenCPU.com carries the Bios
Saviors, and I've never had a bad experience with them, I've used them
several times over the years, and when you figure in shipping, they're
quite a bit cheaper than direct from ioss.
