How well does Flashrom work with AM29LV040B [1] flash chip?

I took apart my old Dell Latitude C600 laptop with thoughts that I could
maybe get it working with LinuxBIOS, but well, chip itself is soldered
on the motherboard [2] (16 pins inside 8 millimeters) so I would first
have to figure out how to implement the hotswapping.

Also, does anyone have ideas where to order these flash chips (PLCC) in
Europe, preferably Finland?
