Regarding ATI cards, (and i assume this board has such card), you can grab
the bios from /proc under linux. That worked for R300/R500 radeon video
cards, maybe it still works on more recent ones :
cd /sys/bus/pci/devices/<pci bus id>/
echo 1 > rom
cat rom > /tmp/vbios.rom
echo 0 > rom
Keep in mind, i am not sure it's 100% complete ram bios, but that's what
xorg ati devs suggested as steps to dump the bios when identifying some
bugs with radeon hardware on linux.
