The infrastructure is already in place for the dbm690t, so we can extend 
it.  The way it works is that if the .rom file doesn't exist, a friendly
message tells you how to aquire it.  In the case of the dbm690t, it 
would be a download from the web, in the case of the Tyan, it would give 
a link to the wiki site explaining how to extract the ROM.  The .rom 
gets copied to a known file and boom - you are in business.
