I just looked in our tree and I see src/mainboard/mb899. Anyone know how well

Is the following your board?
If so, the bios chip might be the SST thing near the white connector in the
bottom left quadrant of the board. I think it's an LPC style chip. Having
another chip to flash instead of that one would mean that you could keep your
oringinal untouched. I think that usually those types of chips just pull right
Also, having an external flasher would be really useful in case you flash a bad
image onto your chip and need to fix it.
