Ok that is a Hynix chip, no other chips of that bran is currently supported, but the data-sheet is available here:
So it shouldn't be to much trouble to get it working.
It is a 256KB 5v PLCC32. I think it is parallel but you should check with the flashrom developers to confirm this.
You probably want to desolder it and solder on a PLCC32 socket and get a compatible spare to experiment with, so that you do not brick you board. If you are no skilled with a solder iron i highly recommend paying some one who is.
