Already tried flashing my bios with flashrom: it worked fine. I didn't
know you could hotswap chips to reprogram them though: I thought I'd
have to use an external programmer. Is there no risk of corrupting
data on the chip as you remove it?

I'm not really familiar with serialICE, where can i find these
examples? I looked in the source code but didnt find anything (might
have been looking in the wrong place though)
Btw, sorry for replying directly to you last time. I didn't realise
you'd sent the email to me and cc'ed it to the list, so I just idly
hit reply and it sent directly to you.
