A8N-sli deluxe, an "nforce 4 sli" board probably shares the same pcb design with more solder pads populated (pls cnfirm), and is also out of stock mostly.

Hot plugging a BIOS chip was successfully done (pull out chip with glued-on handle while running Linux), so you don't necessarily need an external eprom programmer, just a spare working 49LF004.
The '''ASUS A8NE-FM/S''' has initial support in the form of [http://www.linuxbios.org/pipermail/linuxbios/2007-July/023029.html a patch].


8 MBit SST 49LF080A was also successfully flashed and booted with legacy BIOS (two images concatenated).

* Single DIMM support only.
 
* The MAC address is stored in flash for almost all CK804/MCP55 boards. All of these boards flashed with LB probably have the same MAC address. See src/southbridge/nvidia/ck804/romstrap.inc and src/southbridge/nvidia/mcp55/romstrap.inc for details. On some of these boards, the MAC address is stored in a separate EEPROM, but you can't count on that.
