[ale] bios update died

I've always heard that if your bios update goes south, you're screwed. 
Well, there's a first time for everything.

Updating the bios on my primary box, all was going well, then the screen 
goes blank and the machine begins to cycle through my cd drives.  First 
one appears like it's being accessed, then the 2nd.  It just keeps doing 
this.  I know you're not supposed to shut the box down during a bios 
update, but after 30 minutes, I figured it's toast anyway.

So, it appears this mb has a replaceable bios chip.  Is this a possible 
solution, or am I looking at a piece of artwork now?

until later, Geoffrey
