Re: various BIOS questions
Yes, its calling "flashing". I think its microfirmware who does alot of these updates, and as good as rainbow may be, i wouldn't be letting some on a message board write my updates for one good reason:

I have a problem, a computer I want to restore (has dos 5 and win3.1, planning to change over to *nix). The problem is, before I do that, I need to change the bios cause it can't boot from floppy (for some reason it's been disabled) and the command.com on the c: drive has been damaged. I have no boot disks that are compatable (they won't work anyway). There's no available option to do access the cmos in the bios......so, is BIOS upgradeable somehow? This is a 386 so im assuming it's on chip, so what can I do?
A bad or unsucessful flash will render your motherboard useless, with the exeception to a very ugly paper weight.
