Well My electrical engineering knowledge does not reach as far that I
would know where to connect what :) I can read a schematic and solder
based on that, but those pictures from the wiki that I linked,
http://www.coreboot.org/Developer_Manual/Tools/Dual_Flash has a small
PCB, with 2 flash chips on it, but I can't figure out where to connect what.
I do think it's a great idea, and maybe it would be an idea to draw the
PCB in kicad/geda or the like, and actually have small batches made. I
know dangerousprototypes.com has loads of small PCB's made for a few
bux. Having a few on hand of these, and be able to send them to people
would be great! Stuff one in an envelope and mail it out for the price
of a stamp.
