Before you think about upgrasing your BIOS please back up your bios file to a floppy. I can send you software to do this or you can download the AMI flash utility and use it to backup your BIOS without flashing it.

The IBM flash utility does not provide you with the ability to back up your bios. If the flash goes bad (BadFlash)you will have a dead motherboard. IBM won't sell you a new chip and wants $700 for a replacement motherboard.
