so far there is do explicit support, but it would make some sense. PCI 
expansion ROM is not a full-scale replacement for main BIOS though. PCI 
ROM is called rather later during initialization from legacy BIOS. There 
is public linux code for flashing via RTL Nic cards around however, and 
it might be some kind of "auxiliary ROM" on unsocketed Gigabyte boards 
or play a similar role possibly (my 2 ct.)  --Q
