You might run into trouble because the i945 code has only been running
on mobile chipsets so far (FSB 667 vs FSB 1066).

It shouldn't be a big deal to get this working, but you should
definitely make sure you have an SPI writer (such as the dediprog sf100)
around in case something goes wrong. Alternatively you can try to put a
socket or a second bios chip on the board, see
for more details.
