I believe there is something called firebrand that will write using the
parallel part. And contacting sales at the main store selling those
things, I was recommended using the parallel port one vs the usb one --
probably because the only s/w support is firebrand.
The only reason I needed a Willem programmer was in case I couldn't get
the i440bx board flashing flash parts in Linux. Another idea, I got
working, was a FreeDOS LiveCD bootdisk with the popular "UniFlash"

Other then this, my impression is the Willem Programmers are basically
bricks until somebody adds some code to firebrand for USB support.
