Doable, but painful. That thing is a parallel port flasher and uses USB

Sure. By the way, what's the status of Paraflasher? Does it work for
flashing? Any interest in adding flashrom support for it (easy task)?

Does someone want to check the Nano BIOS Programmer support list against
the flashrom support list? Would be cool if we could list all chips they do.
