Please note. I'm just abut to install the new BIOS. As for now, I
didn't try it and cannot make any promises.

Basicly, you set a jumper to enable writing, load MSDOS, start the
loader program (should have come with the motherboard), save the old
BIOS to disk and write a new one from a file.

There is a Asus FAQ in alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus. I'll mail it
to anyone without access to this newsgroup.

The ftp sites are:

Official ftp-site from ASUS:
 - (      /pub/ASUS

WWW Page from ASUS:
 (Use for Productinformation only, very slow...)

Other sites with BIOS-Updates:
 -                          /pub/asus
 -                     /Vendors/ASUS/
 -                        /pub1/vendors/ASUS/
 -                           \pub\ASUS
 -                  /pub/msdos/ASUS (*)
 -           /pub/mirror/asus

(*) /pub/ __msdos__ /ASUS? Must be kidding...
